Iran Holds Anti-Air Exercises Defending Nuclear Sites [View all]

(AFP) 4 hours ago

TEHRAN Iran's military announced on Monday it has launched four days of manoeuvres in the south of the country aimed at boosting anti-air defences protecting nuclear sites.

"These exercises aim to reinforce the integrated abilities of the country's anti-air defences," said a statement from the Katem-ol-Anbia military air base coordinating Iran's anti-air and ballistic missile systems.

Missiles, anti-aircraft artillery, radars and warplanes were being deployed, it said.

The declaration, reported by the official news agency IRNA, came as officials from the UN nuclear watchdog were holding talks in Tehran on Iran's suspect nuclear programme which has unsettled the West and Israel.
