Iran Tests Military Units’ Reaction In Case Of Attack

By

Iran’s military is going ahead with four days of war games despite rising criticism triggered by the country’s nuclear program.

State-run media said the military exercises are being conducted in eastern Iran near the border with Afghanistan. It appears that the exercises began Saturday, Nov 19.

The official Press TV said the initial phase of the drills was meant to test the ability of military units to react and deploy in case of an attack.

Both Israel and the United States have refused to rule out the use of military force to prevent Iran from building nuclear weapons. Israeli officials have also been hinting Israel may take action soon if Western sanctions fail to dissuade Tehran from developing nuclear weapons.

Iran has consistently denied allegations its nuclear program is being used for anything other than peaceful purposes, VOA News reported.
