Army Test-Fires Missiles in Drill

The army successfully test-fired missiles on Saturday during the second stage of a military drill codenamed Beit-ol-Moqaddas 27.
"During the first stage of the drill, held in the western province of Kermanshah, the army's rapid response units conducted operations against mock enemies within the shortest time possible," Army Commander Lieutenant General Ahmad Reza Pourdastan was quoted by ISNA as saying on Saturday.
"The second stage featured the successful test-firing of M6, M10 and Fajr missiles in the city of Aran va Bidgol in Isfahan Province."
This stage will also include the operation of domestically manufactured army drones, Pourdastan said, adding that the last stage of the drill will be held in Isfahan Province as well.
The seven-day exercise has been organized with the aim of increasing the readiness of the armed forces against the danger of the "proxy wars" the Leader of the Islamic Revolution highlighted in his recent remarks. In his speech in the commencement ceremony for graduates of Imam Hossein Military Academy in Tehran on Wednesday, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei pointed to attempts by some officials of Persian Gulf Arab states to spread proxy wars to Iran's borders, warning that any such move would prompt Iran's "tough" response.
