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.
