Iranian Army Ground Forces to hold armored drill in October: Commander

Politics - A senior Iranian commander says the Ground Forces of Iran’s Army will hold an armored drill in the southeastern parts of the country early in fall.

Commander of the Iranian Army's Ground Forces Ahmad Reza Pourdastan said on Sunday that the maneuvers will be held in October.

“This drill will be held in a vast area of the country’s southeast and tactics as well as methods of asymmetric warfare will be tested,” Pourdastan added.

Over the past few years, Iran has held several military exercises to enhance the defense capabilities of its armed forces and to test modern military tactics and equipment.

The Ground Forces of Iran’s Army recently held a military drill, codenamed Bait-ul-Muqaddas 25, in the central Iranian province of Esfahan and succeeded in achieving all pre-planned objectives.

In March, the Ground Forces launched a three-day drill, codenamed Khatam al-Anbia, in the southwestern province of Khuzestan, during which new indigenous missiles were test-fired.

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.
