Tehran, Iran, Mar. 10 – Iran’s Islamist militia, the Bassij, staged war games on Friday in the southern suburbs of Tehran to defend the Iranian capital against “enemy air attacks”, the state-run news agency ILNA reported.

Nine “Ashoura Battalions” of the Bassij, a branch of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, took part in the drills near the Tehran-Qom highway to “enhance the strength and capability of the force against enemy air attacks”.

The news agency report said “medium and light arms” were used in the exercises.

“Our forces carried out operations against heliborne attacks to help prepare against possible threats by foreign countries against our country”, the report added.

The exercises involved the use of “electronic warfare tools” to “disrupt the enemy’s wireless and radio communications”, according to the report.

In February, some 2,500 members of the Bassij took part in military drills in Qods (Jerusalem) Garrison in Tehran’s Garm-Darreh district.

Those military exercises also involved the paramilitary group attacking and destroying the “positions of enemy forces that had been ferried to Tehran by helicopters”.
