TEHRAN (Press Shia) – Iran’s Army Commander Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi called on the Army forces to maintain a constant level of preparedness to address any imminent threat.
In comments in a gathering of Army Ground Force commanders in Tehran on Wednesday, Major General Mousavi said Iran is faced with “serious threats” today.
“While such threats will not emerge on the ground in the first stage, the Ground Force must preserve and boost its preparedness,” he stressed.
“Today, we must practice the game of war constantly and reach the level of ‘night of attack’ strategy in terms of mental and intra-unit preparedness,” the general underlined.
Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei has on various occasions reiterated the need for boosting Iran’s military capabilities and defense preparedness.
In November 2018, Ayatollah Khamenei said that Iran’s enhanced military preparedness would frighten the foes and be deterrent against the enemies, underlining, “The Islamic Republic is not intending to begin a war against anyone, but you (the Iranian military forces) should boost your capabilities in such a way that not only the enemy would be fearful and afraid of attacking Iran, but also thanks to the solidarity, might, and effective presence of the Armed Forces, the specter of threats against the Iranian nation would be swept away.”
