Iranian Commander: IRGC to Stage Massive Drills in Northern Iran on February 4
“The fourth day of the 10-Day Dawn celebrations (February 1-11, marking the 37th anniversary of the victory of the 1979 Islamic Revolution over the former Pahlavi regime) is named ‘the Islamic Revolution, Faith, Jihad and Martyrdom Day’, and Golestan province’s Beit ul-Moqaddas and Kosar battalions of Neinava corps will stage drills on that day,” Commander of Neinava Corps of Golestan Brigadier General Rahmatollah Sadeqi said on Saturday.
In relevant remarks in September, Commander of the IRGC Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari announced the Armed Forces’ plan to stage 20 wargames in the current Iranian year (started on March 21).
“20 drills will be staged this year by the Armed Forces based on the schedule,” Jafari told reporters in a press conference in Tehran.
Also in the same month, Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi announced the IRGC plans to stage two massive specialized drills by the end of the current Iranian year.
“We will have two IRGC specialized drills by the end of this year and of course, one of the drills might be coordinated with the Army,” Fadavi told reporters in Tehran.
