TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps described military exercises as a reminder that Iran is fully ready to safeguard its interests, warning the adversaries to avoid any miscalculation as Iran’s finger is on the trigger.
Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Major General Hossein Salami said military drills in Iran demonstrate the country’s deterrent power.
The war games also make it clear to the enemies that they must avoid any miscalculation about Iran’s defense power, the IRGC commander added.
The general also noted that the military drills give the enemies the message that Iran would protect its independence, dignity and identity without any consideration.
“Our fingers are on the trigger on behalf of the great Iranian nation,” he said, underlining that the IRGC forces are prepared to deal with the threats along the border, in the heart of homeland, or deep in the faraway territories.
The Iranian Army and the IRGC have held several exercises across Iran over the past two weeks.
In a war game on Saturday, the IRGC Aerospace Force blasted targets in the northern parts of the Indian Ocean with long-range ballistic missiles from a distance of 1,800 kilometers.
