Commander of Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base Lieutenant General Farzad Esmaeili underlined that the country's air defense system is so powerful that it can engage and destroy multiple hostile flying objects of different types at once. "The air defense system can engage in combat against various targets at any altitudes and block the path of any hostile flying objects that intend to enter the country's airspace," Esmaeili said on Sunday, o Fars News Agency reported.  Stressing that Iran enjoys a desirable level of sustainable security, he said the enemies cannot even think of posing a military threat to the country. The general referred to the Iranian Armed Forces' different defensive capabilities and said this has created a proper level of deterrence against hostile moves. Esmaeili had announced in July that the new defense systems integrated into the country's homemade missile shield have increased its air defense capability. "Integration of indigenized systems with the new systems has increased [Iran's] air defense capability," he said at the time.
