"Air defense unit of the Southern Zone is protecting the Persian Gulf air space well through its skillful personnel, radar, missile systems, five missile defense systems in (the Southern port city of ) Bushehr and Khark together with hundreds of monitoring posts and electronic systems and fighter jets," Salahian told reporters on Wednesday.

Stressing that his forces are tasked with defending several Southern regions including Bushher, Shiraz, Khark and Taheri, the commander warned, "The unit will react to any kind of aggression through different military tactics, thanks to its surface-to-air heavy artillery systems."

Iranian officials have announced that the country has now reached self-sufficiency in producing radar systems in different frequencies and for various ranges.

Also, Commander of Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Ahmad Miqani announced in December that the country's experts are boosting the range of home-made air defense radar systems to 3000km.

"Iran is working on a radar system that can cover areas within a range of 3,000 km," Miqani said, adding that the system will enable the country to identify all flying objects around the country.

A senior Iranian Air Defense commander also said in November that Iran's radar systems can detect all flying objects in the entire region, even in the Persian Gulf littoral states.

"In addition to the Southern borders and waters, all Persian Gulf littoral states are under the cover of the radars of the Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base," Commander of the Air Defense Unit of Southeastern Iran General Habibollah Alizadeh told FNA at the time.

Referring to the production of radar equipment and instruments inside the country, he said that Iran has gained self-sufficiency in producing radar systems and it is no more dependant on any foreign countries in this ground.
