A high ranking Iranian military commander says the ongoing maneuvers in southern country focus, among other things, on electronic warfare.

Iranian Army's Ground Forces Brigadier General Kioumars Heidari said that the drills will also focus on countering enemy’s electronic warfare in which Iranian armed forces will use their electronic warfare potentials against the attacks by hypothetical enemy.

"The Ground Forces, I can say, will be focusing on electronic warfare and anti-electronic warfare operations," the commander pointed out, adding, "In coming days, during various stages of the maneuvers, we have air detection on the agenda and our powerful Air Force will also conduct various other stages of the operations that are remaining."

The commander noted that the Iranian Armed Forces conducted five drill phases on the second day of the major military exercises, adding, "There was another mobile area operation in which we could provide security for the coastline."

Different types of military hardware and weapons are deployed both in the water and on land during the drill, which is the largest of its kind in the region.
