Iran’s Revolutionary Guards have shot down two “Western spy drones” in the Gulf, a senior Iranian commander has been quoted as saying.
“Many” other drones have been shot down over an unspecified period of time, the Fars news agency quoted him as saying.
The head of the Revolutionary Guards’ air force wing, Amir Ali Hajizadeh, produced no evidence to support the report.
He said this was the first time news of the incidents had been reported.
