Leader of the Islamic Ummah Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei has instructed the Iranian Air Force defense forces to constantly upgrade their preparedness for repelling a variety of threats.
“Upgrade your preparedness and options constantly for countering all types of threats,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in a meeting with top commanders and officials of Iran’s Khatam al-Anbiya Air Defense Base in Tehran on Tuesday.
The Leader hailed efforts by commanders and staff of Khatam al-Anbiya Air Defense Base, saying they have to identify the enemy’s “vulnerable points” and devise plans for dealing with them.
The Leader also urged air defense commanders to communicate and exchange views with scientific and military organs.
“You should increase and diversify your options in the face of various threats,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
He further called on the Armed Forces’ authorities to “appreciate” Iranian people’s trust in officials and “reciprocate it by fulfilling their duties.”
Speaking prior to Ayatollah Khamenei’s remark, the commander of Iran’s Khatam al-Anbiya Air Defense Base, Brigadier General Farzad Esmaili, expressed the base’s full readiness to implement the Leader’s guidelines.
