NOURNEWS - Commander of Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Qader Rahimzadeh underlined his forces' preparedness to confront any possible threats and aggression by enemies.
"With full vigilance, the Air defense units are monitoring the sky of the region and the space around the borders of the country," General Rahimzadeh said while visiting the Iranian Air Defense zone in the Eastern part of the country.
The Iranian Air Defense units are ready to face any possible threat, he underscored.
In relevant remarks earlier this month, Commander of the Iranian Army’s Air Defense Force Brigadier General Alireza Sabahi Fard underlined his forces' watchful eyes to safeguard the country's sky, warning enemies that the slightest aggression will receive a crushing response.
“We will not allow any mistake by the enemies for the sake of our authority and dignity,” General Sabahi Fard said while visiting the air defense center in the Southeastern port city of Chabahar.
“The units of this force, by [exercising] intelligence, vigilance and [keeping a] a watchful eye, will not allow any aggression by outsiders,” he added.
General Sabahi Fard noted that the Northern Indian Ocean and the strategic region of Southeastern Iran are under full surveillance of the air defense, stressing the region enjoys complete security.
He said the Chabahar air defense center is in charge of monitoring the sky of a part of the country where there is a lot of air and sea transportation to the Strait of Hormuz and the Persian Gulf, as well as to East Asia and Central Asia, adding that various types of surveillance equipment are deployed to the region to monitor any moves.
“All kinds of completely indigenous electronic interception, radar and missile systems, which are the result of round-the-clock efforts of the youth of this border and region, are deployed in this area, and the enemies know that we are very close to them in the region and we even monitor their breathing,” the commander added.
He said Iran’s air defense has long been capable of detecting and monitoring any flying object with any radar cross-section and uses powerful systems and weapons for tactical and defensive actions against offensive forces.
