Commander: Army, IRGC Unity Angering, Frustrating Enemy

TEHRAN (FNA)- Commander of the Iranian Army’s Air Defense Brigadier General Alireza Sabahifard said the ever-increasing unity between the Army and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps has infuriated and frustrated the enemy.

“Khatam Al-Anbia Air Defense Base is the authority for the country’s space security,” General Sabahifard said on Friday, adding, “This has caused unity between the Army and the IRGC on the daily basis and has infuriated the enemies.”

He made the remarks during his visit to the command control center and radar site in Karaj, Western Tehran, stressing the need to bolster unity between the Army and the IRGC.

In relevant remarks late April, Commander-in-Chief of the Iranian Armed Forces and Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei in a decree appointed Brigadier General Qader Rahimzadeh as the new commander of Khatam Al-Anbia Air Defense Base.

"Given the commitment, merit and valuable experiences and at the proposal of the Chief Commander of Army Forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran, you are appointed as the Commander of the Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base," the Leader wrote in his decree on Wednesday April 28.

"A synergistic and transformational approach for the impenetrable defense of the country's skies is expected from you by using the high capabilities and capacity of the Armed Forces and the country as well as strengthening integrated network system and controlling of the air defense," it added.

"I wish you ever more success and prosperity in the new position. Here, I seize this opportunity to express my thanks to the unsparing and valuable services of former commander of the Air Defense Base Major General Abdol Rahim Mousavi," the Leader said.
