Hojat-ol-Islam Abbas Mohammadhassani, the head of the Amy’s Ideo-Political Organization, made the remark at a ceremony held in Tehran on Thursday to mark the conclusion of the 42nd Quran competition of the Army staff, conscripts and university students.
He added that Iran’s Army is always victorious and undefeatable because it is a Quranic Army and is connected to the Holy Book.

He said Quran contests are the only competitions in which there is no loser because all of those who enter this field are winners.
