Iran's state TV on Sunday said the country has started large-scale air defense war games aimed at protecting nuclear facilities against any possible attack. The five-day drill will cover an area a third of the size of Iran and spread across the central, western and southern parts of the country.


According to the AP, Gen. Ahmad Mighani, head of an air force unit that deals with threats to Iran's air space, said Saturday the war games would cover regions where Iran's nuclear facilities are located.
