The drills will be held jointly with the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), Commander of the Iranian Army's Ground Forces Brigadier General Ahmad-Reza Pourdastan was quoted by Press TV as saying.

One exercise will take place in southeast Iran and another “most probably” in central Iran or along the country’s western border, he said.

Apart from the two joint war games, the Army Ground Forces will also carry out three other military exercises independently, the commander said.
