🇦🇿🇮🇷 Within the framework of the Conquerors of Khaybar exercises, Iran continues to transfer personnel of the armed forces to the border with Azerbaijan. The number of units involved directly says that Tehran is serious about a possible escalation in the region.
According to the latest data, the following are deployed in the north of the country:
🔹 16th Armored Division from Qazvin, consisting of 116th and 261st brigades.
🔹 21st Infantry Division from Tabriz.
🔹 64th Infantry Division from Urmia as part of the 164th Infantry Brigade.
🔹 31st division "Ashura" of the IRGC.
🔹 65th Airborne Special Forces Brigade as part of one of the battalions.
The following have been deployed to airfields in the border provinces:
🔹 Su-24, F-14 Tomcat and F-4E Phantom fighters and bombers.
🔹 Transport aircraft Il-76 and C-130 "Hercules".
🔹 Helicopters AH-1 Cobra and CH-47 Chinook.
For reinforcement in the north of Iran, missile systems were additionally placed:
🔹 "Fajr-5" and "Fajr-5C" MLRS with an effective firing range of up to 70 km
🔹 Launchers of ballistic missiles "Fatah-313" and "Zulfikar" with a radius of destruction of up to 700 km.
It is unlikely that all these formations and units will leave the border with Azerbaijan after the end of the planned exercises, so the tension on the border will only grow. And there it is not far from provocation with subsequent conflict.
