Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards on Monday began a week-long military exercise in Khorasan province close to the border with Afghanistan.
"The one-week exercise in Attayieh Neishabour region consists of maneuvers by various units of ground forces aimed at enhancing the country's military capabilities" the unit’s commander Mohammad-Taqi Osanlu, was quoted as saying by IRNA.
"The region was in the past the nest of miscreants and armed Afghans, but with the presence of our forces the region has been cleared of such undesirable elements," he detailed.
"Our unit is equipped with latest military tools and we are ready to defend our borders," Osanlu said. (Albawaba.com)
