Iran’s Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi has inaugurated the
production line of an indigenous short-range air defense system called Ya
Zahra.

“This defense system has the capability of detecting, tracking and
destroying short-range aerial targets such as aircraft, helicopters and
drones,” Vahidi said on Sunday.

“Other features of the system include the capability of simultaneously
engaging and destroying several targets, high operational speed and fully
automatic tracking,” the Iranian defense minister added.

Vahidi added that the mobile missile system can be connected to the country’s
defense network and deployed in any location.

Iran tested the Ya Zahra missile system during a massive seven-day maneuver,
codenamed Modafe'an-e Aseman-e Velayat 4 (Defenders of the Velayat Skies 4),
in November 2012.

Vahidi also pointed to the mass-production of the Mersad air defense system,
saying, “Mersad surface-to-air missile system is an efficient and advanced
medium-range air defense system which can carry out defense operations
against various kinds of high-speed aircraft, helicopters, drone and cruise
missiles.”

Vahidi said the system had managed to successfully destroy aerial targets in
the Modafe'an-e Aseman-e Velayat 4 drills.

Over the past years, Iran has made important breakthroughs in its defense
sector and attained self-sufficiency in producing important military
equipment and systems.

Tehran has repeatedly stated that its military might poses no threat to
other countries, reiterating that its defense doctrine is based on
deterrence.
