Iran’s security is exemplary: commander

TEHRAN – Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base Commander Farzad Esmayeeli said on Tuesday that security of Iran is “exemplary.”

“The (Iranian) people want us to stand against the enemy firmly and we will stand,” he said during a ceremony in Tehran.

He said that Iran’s capability in the area of air defense is “unique” although the country was under sanctions for years.

Esmayeeli announced on Monday that the country’s armed forces had put into operation the home-made “Nazir” radar system with the capability of detecting radar-evading targets and fighting electronic warfare.

“Nazir radar system was put into operation and from now on, no radar-evading flying object can enter the Islamic Iran’s skies without permission,” Fars news agency quoted General Esmayeeli as saying.
