Iranís Army chief urges utmost preparedness

Tasnim Ė Iranís 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 ďserious threatsĒ today.

ďWhile such threats will not emerge on the ground in the first stage, the Ground Force must preserve and boost its preparedness,Ē he stressed.

ďToday, we must practice the game of war constantly and reach the level of Ďnight of attackí strategy in terms of mental and intra-unit preparedness,Ē the general underlined.

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei has on various occasions reiterated the need for boosting Iranís military capabilities and defense preparedness.

In November 2018, Ayatollah Khamenei said that Iranís enhanced military preparedness would frighten the foes and be deterrent against the enemies, underlining, ďThe 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.Ē
