TEHRAN - The commander of the Iranian Army’s Air Defense Force Brigadier General Alireza Sabahi-Fard says his forces are fully prepared to counter any threat against the country’s secure skies by making use of its state-of-the-art homegrown defense systems and radars.
Brigadier General Sabahi-Fard said Iran enjoys a strong deterrence thanks to the strategic goals established by Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei and the expertise of Iranian youths.
“The powerful Air Defense Force is ready to confront any threat in the safe skies of our beloved country using its new domestically-build systems,” the commander said.
He said the country’s integrated air defense network, which is responsible for the operational control of the air defense units, is becoming stronger at different levels.
He also said the tremendous power of the Air Defense Force was displayed during the large-scale Zolfaqar 1401 joint military drills held in the southern parts of the country early this month.
