The series of "Great Bahman" operations were carried out at a time when since one week ago, the clerical regime held "an unprecedented and unrivaled exercise" for 20 days "on the ground and in the air" in the western and southern parts of the country and put all of its forces on full alert in this region. The clerical regime's leaders had stressed that the primary objective of the maneuvers was to confront the Mojahedin and the Iranian Resistance along "the western and southern borders of the country."
On February 1, the mullahs' Army commander described "the most important accomplishment of this exercise was establishing and maintaining security in the country's borders."
