He added that the Islamic Republic stands ready to deliver a crushing response to any country daring to make such stupid moves against the country or approach Iranian skies.
The senior commander also hailed the latest achievements made by the Air Defense Base personnel.
He added that Iran's Air Defense Base is constantly fulfilling its duties and monitoring the country's sky 'round the clock'.
