The war game, codenamed “Muhammad Rasulullah-3” (Muhammad, the Messenger of God-3) is in progress in Torbat-e-Jam region, province of Khorasan Razavi, northeast of Iran.
A senior commander had announced that one of the aims of war game is to practice how to deal with the possible acts of terrorist groups, such as Daesh, along the country’s borders.
The final stage of the exercises began on Wednesday morning with the flying of Mohajer-2 and Yasir drones.
