The drills will be staged in West Azerbaijan province next week, Xinhua quoted Lieutenant Commander of the IRGC for the operations, Karim Alinejad as saying.

"The war games will be staged concurrently in all towns of West Azerbaijan on Feb. 20 and 21," Alinejad said.

Battalions consisting of male and female members of Basij force will participate in the drills, Alinejad said, adding that clergymen and athletes are among the battalions.
