Iran to stage new military maneuvers across borders

Iranian Revolutionary Guards will stage a new round of three-day military drills from the coming Monday, the local ISNA news agency reported on Sunday.

The report quoted an official statement as saying that “20 brigades of Revolutionary Guards’ ground forces will join the drills, with the most modern equipment recently distributed to them.”

“These exercises will be launched in 16 of Iran’s 30 provinces, “it added.

This is the second time that Iran launched war games in the recent one month.

On Feb. 7, missile units of the air and naval forces of the Revolutionary Guards launched drills in order to test the country’s missile defense capability.

During the exercise, Iran test-fired a land-to-sea cruise missile and its newly imported Tor-M1 air defense missile systems.

Iran has regularly launched large-scale war games since the nuclear issue became the spotlight in the world three years ago.

Last November, Iran started a 10-day military maneuvers dubbed “The Great Prophet 2”, during which the Revolutionary Guards also test fired ballistic Shahab-3 missiles with a range of more than 2, 000 km.
