By Staff, Agencies
Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council [SNSC] Rear Admiral Ali Shamkhani said that the massive drills staged by the country's Armed Forces thwarted the propaganda campaign launched by former US President Donald Trump to intimidate Tehran.
"Trump’s propaganda campaigns to intimidate and influence political will not reach anywhere by the powerful presence of Iranian Armed Forces and holding of rare military exercises,” Shamkhani wrote on his twitter page on Wednesday.
"The Armed forces are the backbone of an active resistance strategy," he added.
The Iranian Army Ground Force started wargames, codenamed Eqtedar 99, in the country’s Southeastern regions on Tuesday morning.
The drills were participated by the airborne units, special forces and rapid reaction brigades, and Iranian Army Commander Major General Abdolrahim Mousavi, Army Ground Force Commander Brigadier General Kiomars Heidari and other senior military officials.
Also, the Islamic Revolution Guard [IRG] started the first phase of the Great Prophet 15 wargames with the IRG Aerospace Force's massive missile launch and drone operations in the Central Desert of Iran on Friday.
The first stage of the Great Prophet 15 drills of the IRG kicked off on Friday morning with the codename of “Ya Fatimah al-Zahar”, during which ground-to-ground ballistic missiles were fired and offensive drone bombers operations were put into action in the general area of Iran’s Central Desert.
During the drills that began in the presence of IRG Chief Commander Major General Hossein Salami, IRG Aerospace Commander Amir Ali Hajizadeh and a number of senior commanders and officials of the Iranian Armed Forces, a new generation of ground-to-ground ballistic missiles and drones were used in compound offensive against hypothetical enemy bases, destroying all the specified targets.
