A senior commander says the Iranian Army’s Ground Forces have successfully staged major missile maneuvers in central Iran.

Army’s Ground Forces Commander Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan told IRNA on Saturday the exercise codenamed Beit-ul-Muqaddas 27 was held in a desert area in the city of Kashan and saw the successful test-firing of missiles which hit predetermined targets.

He added “The M6, M10 and Fajr missiles were fired in the drill.”
The Army’s Ground Forces have improved their missile capabilities which would be put to the test during various stages of the maneuvers.

The top commander said the exercises also involve drone units of the Ground Forces.

Pourdastan said “The final stage of the drills to be held in the central city of Isfahan will feature all units of the Ground Forces.”

He added that the Ground Forces are displaying their might by staging the maneuvers and will show that “we will nip in the bud any aggression against the Islamic Republic of Iran.”

The Beit-ul-Muqaddas 27 drill began in three locations on May 21 and will end on May 27.
