Iran’s Army starts unprecedented wargames in northwestern Iran

The Iranian Army Ground Force kicked off massive drills in the Northwestern parts of Iran on Wednesday in the presence of Army Commander Major General Seyed Abdolrahim Mousavi.

The wargames started by the rapid reaction and mobile offensive units of the Army Ground Force supported by the Airborne helicopters in Orumiyeh region in Northwestern Iran.

Orumiyeh region borders Turkey’s regions of Van and Hakari.

Combat preparedness, rapid reaction, mobility and assessment of the units’ power are among the goals of the unprecedented wargames that are staged with the motto of ‘one target, one bullet’.

General Mousavi elaborated on the unannounced drills in Northwestern Iran, saying that the Ground Forces were informed at midnight of the mission and they arrived in the drills zone immediately.

He noted that the Army units are at the peaks of preparedness, adding the wargames are a warning to the enemies not to miscalculate Iran’s power and the Armed Forces’ readiness for resistance.

“We are prepared for any level of threats that the enemy has designed and will confront it,” General Mousavi said.
