Iran's Revolutionary Guards began a three-day ground and air military exercise on Saturday, Iran's Fars News Agency reported.

Fars quoted the spokesman for the Great Prophet 8 war games as saying the drills included intelligence-gathering drones as well as tests of the IRGC's cyber-defense systems.



According to Fars, the drills are aimed at "maintaining and improving the combat preparedness of the IRGC ground forces, testing the latest combat systems of the IRGC Ground Force and exercising different asymmetric warfare tactics."

The exercise was being held in the regions of Kerman, Siriz and Sirjan in southeastern Iran.
