Enemy does not dare test Iran’s defense power

TEHRAN, Aug. 14 (MNA) – “If the enemy today has ducked 200 km away from the Strait of Hormuz it is due to its fear of Iranian armed forces’ deterrence power and they know that Iran’s defense power is not testable,” according to the commander of the Iranian Army's Air Defense Force Brigadier General Alireza Sabahi Fard.
