Commander Lauds Air Defense Base’s Power to Protect Iranian Airspace
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Army Commander Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi underlined the power of the Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base (the central headquarters of Iran’s Air Defense) and said the country’s airspace is protected by “the impenetrable wall’ of the base.
In a message released on Friday, Major General Mousavi offered his congratulations over the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base.
“The hostilities and threats of the enemies against the Islamic Republic of Iran in the 40 years since the Islamic Revolution have never stopped for a moment, and this necessitates the constant vigilance of all the defense forces of the country,” he said in the message.
“The Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base has been established with wisdom, prudence and the accurate and deep understanding by Commander-in-chief of Iran’s Armed Forces Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei…,” the commander said.
“…The Iranian airspace is surrounded by a fence of security and an impenetrable wall (of protection created by) the Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base,” he added.
On May 29, Ayatollah Khamenei appointed Brigadier General Sabahi Fard as the new commander of Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base.
Sabahi Fard succeeded Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili as the Air Defense chief.
