Iran PressIran news: On the sidelines of the last day of Great Prophet 17 drills on Friday, Major General Mohammad Bagheri stressed that the joint exercise was indicative of the readiness of the Army and Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) forces to toughly respond to any threat by the enemies of the countries.

He also said that this exercise was planned in advance, but the empty threats of the Israeli officials in recent days caused this exercise to take place at this time.

He said the Islamic Republic of Iran never tolerated the threats; it was already negotiating with the other countries for its improvement.
