Expert talks Iran-hosted Velayat-4 military drills

PanARMENIAN.Net - Iranian studies expert Vardan Voskanyan doesn’t believe the Iran-hosted large-scale Velayat-4 military drills to be a serious signal for the U.S. to activate steps.

“The West always reacts to any kind of maneuvers in Iran,” he told a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter, ruling out the possibility of unleashing a land war against Iran.

“The U.S. is likely to employ its air force, and Iran, of course, is getting ready for it,” he said.

According to worldnews.nbcnews.com, the "Velayat-4" maneuvers being held this week will span a massive stretch in Iran's northeast, east, and southeast regions - about half its total land mass.

The week-long maneuvers will include about 8,000 troops, drawn both from Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and its regular military.
