Air defense responsible for most of Iran's airspace security
Iran (IP) - Head of Iran's Passive Defense Organization said that Iran has been successful in both defense and technology fronts.
Iran Press/Iran news: Speaking on the occasion of National Air Defense Day on Monday, Brigadier General Gholamreza Jalali stressed: "Today, a major part of ensuring the security of Iran's airspace is on the air defense base."
Brig. Gen. Jalali stated that air defense has a completely defensive aspect, emphasizing: "Passive defense and air defense are two wings of defense and complement for the country and the perfect defense is formed by the deep combination of the two.
He reminded: "Today, the air defense is in charge of a major part of the security of Iran's airspace which in other words generates authority and deterrence."
Head of Iran's Passive Defense Organization went on to say: "The downing of the American advanced spy plane showed the oversight and capability of the country's air defense, but what doubled the sweetness of this victory was the use of a native system in this operation.
Emphasizing that the current security of Iran is rooted in looking inward and localizing, Brig. Gen. Jalali addressed the border guards of Iran's airspace, saying: "We appreciate your bravery and We are always grateful for your consciousness and awareness."
