IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, April 7, IRNA -- Iran has planned to renew its quick reaction force equipment, said the commander of Iran's Army Ground Force.

'We are going to renew the equipment to be able to perform operations one after another,' Brigadier General Kiumars Heidari said at a meeting on Saturday.

Referring to the three catastrophes that happened in Iran in the past Iranian year (starting March 21, 2017), he said that the Army had an important role in helping the people.

Last year, Iran experienced a destructive earthquake on November 1, in which 620 died and more than 10,000 got injured; Iranian oil tanker Sanchi sank in the East China Sea because of a crash with a Chinese freighter, in which all the 30 people on board lost their lives; also, on February 18, an ATR plane hit a mountain in southeastern Iran and all the 60 passengers and the six crew members aboard were killed.
