Iranian Forces Need Combat Engagement to Boost Capabilities: Top General
Mere reliance on military training and holding war games would not satisfy the whole demands of the armed forces, Major General Mohammad Hossein Baqeri said in a military ceremony in Tehran on Saturday.
“There should be direct engagement in the battlefield and face-off with the enemy to prepare the (military) forces,” the top general added.
To that end, he noted, the Iranian Army and Air Defense forces need to boost their capabilities “at the borders and the fronts that the Islamic Revolution is active.”
Russia’s Sputnik news agency said on Friday that the Sudanese soldiers had been disembarked from a cargo plane in Yemen’s Aden Province.
Local sources said the forces had been transported in military vehicles from the Aden airport to a special camp for Sudanese soldiers in the Khor Maksar district of the Yemeni province.
Sudan has deployed around 1,000 troops to Yemen to help prop up the Saudi-led coalition.
In May, Sudanese Defense Minister Awad Bin Auf assured the coalition that Khartoum would be prepared to contribute more soldiers upon request.
Sudan has confirmed the death of 21 of its troops since the start of the war in March 2015.
