(TEHRAN Press-TV) - The sky can no longer hide any cruise missiles -- stealth or conventional -- entering Iranian air space, the commander of Iran's air defense headquarters maintains.

Announcing the latest milestone in the domestic military industrial achievements, Brigadier General Ahmad Miqani said, "[Despite] thirty years of military sanctions by the enemy, the armed forces have taken appropriates steps toward self-sufficiency and have been able not only to update their equipment, but also to achieve wide-ranging progress in the military and aerospace sector."

The Khatam al-Anbiya Air Base, which operates under the supervision of general Miqani, is the unitary supreme body coordinating and overseeing the nationwide defense of Iran's airspace.

Miqani listed ongoing improvements of existing systems, domestic construction of tens of anti-aircraft artillery pieces at a level that is comparable with latest international systems, construction of air defense missiles, and active and passive radars.

"Today, we are able not only to identify stealth cruise missiles, but also to destroy them," he elaborated.
