IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Dec 22, IRNA -- The maneuver of 'Great Prophet 12(PBUP)', which began on December 15th with the deployment of forces from the provinces of Fars, Kerman and Tehran to the Persian Gulf and Qeshm Island, today ended successfully.

The Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) showed the authority and readiness of the armed forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran to protect the Persian Gulf coast by conducting this exercise in the south of the country.

In this defensive exercise, rapid reaction forces, Special Forces, assault and reconnaissance UAVs, assault helicopters, transportation, mechanized, engineering and demolition units, command and control systems, and Zolfaqar Brigade Division 1 of IRGC's naval force were present.

Commander of the Ground Forces of IRGC Mohammad Pakpour said about the exercise, 'The exercise was at an operational level, in the sense that if the enemy wants to threaten, we will become fully aggressive and offensive, and we will pursue the targets in the depth of the enemy front.'

Meanwhile, Commander-in-Chief of the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC) said the exercise of the 'Great Prophet 12 (PBUH)' is in fact a decisive answer to all the absurd claims of the enemies.

Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari emphasized on Saturday at the final stage of the exercise of the Great Prophet 12 (PBUH) in the Persian Gulf region, 'Hopefully, our enemies, more than ever, have discovered the ability of our harsh response to their actions.'
