Iran’s War Game Warning Message to Global Arrogance: IRGC Commander

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Ground Force Brigadier General Mohammad Pakpour said the ongoing war game in eastern Iran is intended to send a message to global arrogant powers.

With the war game we want to convey a message and warn the global arrogance about the repercussions of any possible “foolish” action against the Islamic Republic, General Pakpour told reporters on Wednesday on the final day of the drills, codenamed “Payambar-e Azam 11 (The Great Prophet)”.

Noting that the massive exercises demonstrate only a fraction of the country’s defense capabilities, he said that Iran’s armed forces are fully prepared to defend their land in face of hegemonic powers.

The Iranian commander also said that all the units taking part in the drills, including the infantry, air force, and commando units, achieved their “intended goals”.

The IRGC Ground Force deployed its airborne troops to Iran’s eastern regions on Wednesday as part of a military drill that is in progress for the third day.

Iran’s Armed Forces hold routine military exercises throughout the year.

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.
