Commander of the Iranian Army Ground Force Brigadier General Kiomars Heidari announced plans to further enhance the power and equipment of rapid reaction forces, Fars News Agency (FNA) reported.
“One of the most important plans and activities of the Ground Force is equipping the rapid reaction brigades and renovation of the sites and equipment of these units,” General Heidari said, addressing the Ground Force Commanders and personnel in Tehran.
“These plans are among the priorities of the Ground Force’s agenda in the current (Iranian) year (which started on March 21),” he added.
In relevant remarks in January, General Heidari underlined his forces’ full preparedness to give firm response to any hostile move by the enemy.
“The Army is ready to thwart any type of enemy’s threats,” General Heidari said.
He reiterated that not only the US, but also other enemies who seek to make a hostile move against the country, will face a crushing reaction.
“As it has been mentioned by Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei “America can’t do a damn thing against Iran,” General Heidari said, noting that such belief has been institutionalized among all Armed Forces of Iran.
