The Iranian Army will hold a series of exercises with airborne and armor units before the end of the current Iranian calendar year (started March 20, 2012), a top military commander said on Tuesday.
The drills will be held jointly with the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), Commander of the Iranian Army's Ground Forces Brigadier General Ahmad-Reza Pourdastan was quoted by Press TV as saying.
