Commander of the Iranian Army’s Ground Force Lieutenant General Kioumars Heidari hailed the remarkable results of the large-scale military maneuvers in southeastern parts of the country, which ended on Tuesday.

Speaking to reporters at the conclusion of the massive drills, the top general said the military teams and referees monitoring the war games have confirmed that it has achieved good results, Tasnim News Agency reported.

The maneuvers began on Sunday over an area of 220,000 square kilometers southeast of Iran, stretching from the Sea of Oman coasts to inland deserts.

According to the commander, one of the main features of the war games was employment of local weapons and tactics.

Heidari noted that the drills had messages for both friends and foes, stressing that Iran’s military capabilities “could smash the enemies and counter threats decisively.”

Highlights of the exercise included heliborne operations to deploy commandos, drone flights for reconnaissance, combat and assault operations, counterterrorism tactics, intense ground battles and electronic warfare.
