Iran to unveil new air defense systems
The missile, artillery, and radar systems that will be unveiled have been manufactured or upgraded by Iranian experts, Brigadier General Farzad Esmaeili said.
In Iran, the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war is known as the Sacred Defense, and Sacred Defense Week is held on the anniversary of the beginning of the war. Sacred Defense Week begins on Shahrivar 31 in the Iranian calendar (September 22 this year), which is the day Iraq invaded Iran and began the imposed war on the country in 1980.
