Iran to Be Burying Place for Any Aggressor: Senior Commander
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Acting commander of the IRGC Ground Force Operations Division warned against any aggression on the Islamic Republic.
“We promise the dear Iranian nation that we will turn the entire country into a burying place for aggressors,” General Morteza Mirian said on the sidelines of the IRGC’s ware games.
The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) on Thursday kicked off the second day of major military maneuver code-named the Great Prophet 9 in southern and western Iran.
As many as 10 military divisions, including artillery, ammunitions, missiles, drones, and reconnaissance jets, will conduct operations in the second day of the drills.
The Ground Force will also fly its reconnaissance drones equipped with powerful cameras and field test its weapons including Ramait roadside mine, Sayyad bounding mine, Asefeh 23mm Gatling gun, Arash shoulder-launched weapon and sniper rifle Siyavash.
The first stage of the war games was held Wednesday by the IRGC Navy in the Strait of Hormuz.
Over the past few years, Iran’s Armed Forces have held several military drills.
The Islamic Republic has repeatedly assured other nations, especially its neighbors, that its military might poses no threat to other countries, stating that its defense doctrine is based on deterrence.
