The Iranian Army and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) launched a new Sector Operations Center (SOC) in Northwestern Iran for joint air defense operations against possible enemy threats.
The SOC was inaugurated in a ceremony participated by Lieutenant Commander of Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Qader Rahimzadeh on Monday on the occasion of the 42nd anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran.
Addressing the ceremony, General Rahimzadeh said that the enemies won’t be able to strike a blow to the Islamic Revolution and the Islamic Republic the same way they have failed in such efforts in the past 4 decades.
“Today, unity and empathy between the Army and the IRGC forces are much more than ever before, and we are witnessing a well-ordered structure in the integrated air defense network to protect the Islamic Iran’s sky,” he added.
The Iranian Army and the IRGC last October staged joint aerial wargames codenamed ‘Modafe’an-e Aseman-e Velayat 99’ (Guardians of Velayat’s Sky-99) on Wednesday.
