Monitoring of the country's airspace and the general training area in the southern part of the country by the Air Defense Forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran, as well as combating hostile targets are among the targets of the ‘Zolfaghar 1400’ joint exercise, said the spokesperson of the exercise Rear Admiral Mahmoud Mousavi.

According to the spokesman, the ‘Zolfaghar 1400’ joint exercise conveys the message of establishing peace and friendship to the countries of the region by relying on their own capabilities as history has shown that other trans-regional countries have been belligerent and insecure actors and have brought nothing but insecurity, war and occupation to the West Asian region.
