Iranian army to stage massive drills

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Army plans to hold large-scale military exercises next week.

Army Lieutenant Commander Brigadier General Abdolrahim Mousavi said the Army’s four forces, namely the Ground Force, Air Force, Navy, and Air Defense, will take part in the extensive maneuver titled “Muhammad Rasullullah” (Muhammad is the messenger of God).

The main stage of the Army’s maneuver is slated for December 23-31, he stated.

General Mousavi went on to say that the drills will be carried out in a large area of 2.2 million square meters.

Over the past few years, Iran’s Armed Forces have held several military drills.

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.
