Iran Army to hold war games to boost capabilities: Commander

Tasnim – Iran’s Army Commander Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi unveiled plans for new military exercises by his forces within the next three months.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Major General Mousavi said the Army has plans to hold war games according to its operational and training purposes.

The drills, aimed at boosting the Army’s combat capabilities, will be staged by the current Iranian year’s end (March 20, 2019), the commander noted.

He said publicizing the news of the war games, to be held jointly by all of the Army units, would depend on the aims of the drills.

Iran’s Armed Forces hold routine military exercises throughout the year.

Iranian officials have repeatedly underscored that the country will not hesitate to strengthen its military capabilities, including its missile power, which are entirely meant for defense, and that Iran’s defense capabilities will be never subject to negotiations.
