Iran reinforces air defense in western borders after Iraqi Kurdish referendum

Iran reinforces air defense in western borders
Iran's army has dispatched more air defense missile systems to its western borders to counter any threats, the army's air defense headquarters announced on Tuesday.

The army's air defense has increased preparedness for "decisive response" to any act of aggression in western areas, said Alireza Elhami, lieutenant commander of the Khatam al-Anbia Air Defense Base.

The move by the Iranian army came after the Iraqi Kurdistan region held the independence referendum on Monday.

Iran has announced its discontent with the independence vote, while voicing its support for the territorial integrity of Iraq.

On Sunday, the Iranian army and the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) kicked off military drills along the country's western border areas ahead of the Kurdish referendum.
