U.S. reconnaissance drone down over Iran
A senior Iranian military official said the army had shot down a remote-controlled reconnaissance drone operated by the US military in the eastern part of the country. The source conveyed on Sunday that Iran army successfully targeted the American-built RQ-170 Sentinel stealth aircraft after it crossed into Iranian airspace over the border with neighboring Afghanistan.
He added that the US reconnaissance drone has been seized with minimum damage.
The unnamed Iranian military official added that “due to the clear border violation, the operational and electronic measures taken by the Islamic Republic of Iran's Armed Forces against invading aircraft will not remain limited to the Iran's borders."
