No Country Dares to Attack Iran
Bfnews: "No country dares to attack Iran," Pakpour told reporters in Tehran on Monday, reiterating Iran's growing power in the region and the world.

He underscored Iran's high military capabilities and power in different fields and fronts, and said "the IRGC plans to stage numerous drills in the new (Iranian) year (started on March 20)".

Iran's Army and IRGC hold regular wargames to practice combat tactics and also test new home-made military tools, equipment and weapons in action.

In the most recent case, the IRGC ground force held military drills, codenamed as Hamiyan-e Vellayat (Supporters of Religious Leadership), in Jahrom general zone, in Iran's Southern province of Fars earlier this year.

Commander of Khatom ol-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmayeeli announced after the wargames that Iranian Army and IRGC reviewed their latest air defense tactics during the drills.

On the first day of the exercises, the air defense units of the Iranian Armed Forces under the command of Khatam ol-Anbia base managed to detect and identify invading aircraft and started confrontation with enemy warplanes using air defense systems and Scramble and CAP air defense planes.

During the second day of the drills, Iran's air defense force assessed the preparedness and performance of its air defense artillery and mid-range missile systems against low-altitude aerial threats.

The drills were staged by the air defense units of the Iranian Army and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).

Iran's air defense units assessed the performance and capabilities of different types of mobile and fixed radar systems on the third day of Sarallah military drills in Southern Iran.

During the phases of the air defense wargames, different fixed and mobile radar systems which have been manufactured and upgraded by Iranian experts and are under the control of Iran's integrated air defense network were used.

Kasta and NEBO radars as well as the Iran-made Kashef (Discoverer) and Matla ol-Fajr radars were used to detect and identify aerial threats.

Iran's home-made air defense radar systems can easily detect cruise missiles and drones.
