Iran will counter enemy threats on its borders, Iranian commander

General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan

Iran’s missiles have been reinforced and upgraded both in their range and destructive power, says an Iranian Army commander.

A senior Iranian Army commander says the Islamic Republic will counter any threat posed by its enemies on the country’s borders, stressing the resolve of the Armed Forces of the Islamic Republic to defend Iran against any foreign threats.

“Rocket-launching units of the Iranian Army Ground Forces possess very good capability and capacity,” Commander of the Iranian Army’s Ground Forces Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan told reporters on Tuesday night.

“Our missiles have been reinforced and upgraded both in their range and destructive power,” Pourdastan added.

He went on to say that the Iranian Army’s missiles have passed testing stages in recent war games dubbed Beit ul-Muqaddas 27 held by the Army’s Ground Forces in May.

The Iranian commander also said that the country’s troops are “soldiers of Islam” and will not violate the integrity of any country.

In recent years, Iran has made major breakthroughs in its defense sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing important military equipment and systems.

The Islamic Republic maintains that its military might poses no threat to other countries, stating that its defense doctrine is merely based on deterrence.
