Leader: Iran owes security to air defense preparedness

Tasnim – Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei commended the Iranian Air Defense forces for their contribution to national security.

Head of the military office of Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Brigadier General Mohammad Shirazi, had a telephone conversation with Commander of Iran’s Air Defense Brigadier General Alireza Sabahi Fard on Monday to relay a message from Ayatollah Khamenei.

“Send my regards to the vigilant personnel of the country’s Air Defense. The country owes its security to Air Defense’ preparedness and wakefulness. Our pious people are grateful for your unwavering efforts. Be appreciative of this,” the Leader told the Air Defense units in the message, passed on by General Shirazi.
