IRGC Commandos Join Rapid-Response Unit

Commandos serving in the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps' Ground Force have been integrated into the Rapid-Response Unit of the force, a top commander announced. "Since a year ago, on the order of the Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, the IRGC Ground Force's Special Forces have been merged with the Rapid-Response Unit," IRGC Ground Force Deputy Commander Lieutenant General Abdollah Araqi told Tasnim News Agency on Monday. "Now categorized as members of the Rapid-Response Unit, the elite commandos are involved in quick deployment missions."  Araqi noted that the unit's commandos can be deployed to any part of the country in less than 24 hours to take part in various missions and serve in battles. The IRGC consists of the Ground Force, Air Force and Navy, of which the latter is tasked with ensuring the security of Persian Gulf. Its forces operate in tandem with the Army, which has its own Ground Force, Navy, Air Force and Air Defense Base.
