Commander: Iran’s Air Defense System Always on Alert


Commander of Imam Reza Air Defense Base Brigadier General Abdollah Reshadi underlined that the country’s home-made missile and radar systems are always monitoring any move and are capable of tracing even the most modern radar-evading spy planes.

“By utilizing advanced air defense systems which are made in Iran, the advanced radar-evading spy aircrafts can be traced and monitored at very high altitudes,” Reshadi told reporters on Monday.

He underlined that the state-of-the-art air defense systems can easily trace the AWACS reconnaissance airplanes and any aircraft will be traced in less than two minutes.

Brigadier General Reshadi underscored that the Islamic Republic of Iran’s air defense capabilities have caused the country’s enemies not even to think about aggression against us.

In relevant remarks in early August, Commander of Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmayeeli underlined that Iran’s radar, electronic and missile systems are always awake to monitor and show reaction to the slightest hostile moves of the enemies.

“The air defense is always ready for mission and its radar, electronic, missile and monitoring systems are not turned off under any conditions and they are always under operation,” Esmayeeli said, visiting the existing defense systems in the Southwestern parts of Iran.

He said that the air defense system is constantly monitoring and providing coverage for every inch of the country’s airspace.
