DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran's armed forces should increase their preparedness to deter and defend against an attack by foreign enemies, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Thursday.

"The armed forces must urgently increase their readiness, so that the enemy dare not think of attacking," Khamenei was quoted as saying by Iranian agencies.
