TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - The exercise named “Heidar-e-Karrar” includes different units of the Iranian Army, including the Rapid Reaction Unit, the Artillery Unit, and the Drone Unit.
The army plans to display its mobility and offensive power in the third stage of the military drill, underway near the Parviz Khan border in western Iran.
Some forces of the Iraqi army are also present in the area and participate in the war game alongside with the Iranian troops.
Last week, Iran’s Air Defense intensified activities along the country’s western borders, deploying new missile equipment there.
The dispatch of missiles coincided with the military drills that the Army and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) have staged along the country’s western border areas.
The Army’s Heidar-e-Karrar war game had kicked off along Iran’s western border areas on last Sunday.
The IRGC has also staged another drill in the western provinces. Commanders say the Muharram war game signals the message of peace and security to the friends and reminds the enemies that the country’s borders will be powerfully protected against hostile moves.
