Military Official: Iran’s Air Defense Deters All Threats
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – A military official said the Islamic Republic of Iran’s air defense capabilities have made the country’s airspace immune to any aerial threat.
“Today, the air defense safeguards the Islamic Republic of Iran’s airspace in a powerful, magnificent and honorable manner,” Mohammad Ali Ansari, a senior military official at Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base said on Sunday.
He also added that the air defense will not allow any foreign force to carry out attacks on Iran.
On July 8, Commander of Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili said Iran will unveil the mobile version of its indigenous S-200 air defense missile system in the upcoming military wargames.
In recent years, the Islamic Republic of Iran has made great achievements in its defense sector and has attained self-sufficiency in producing essential military equipment and systems.
Tehran has repeatedly assured other nations that its military might poses no threat to other countries, saying that the Islamic Republic’s defense doctrine is entirely based on deterrence.
