Revolutionary Guard Says Aircraft Were Hit Over The Persian
Iran's Revolutionary Guard claims that it has shot down two
UAVs over the Persian Gulf after they violated Iranian airspace.
They offered no details as to where the aircraft originated, or
when they claim the shootdown occurred.
General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, leader of the air force wing of the
Revolutionary Guard, announced the vague claim indicating only that
"this is the first time we are saying it." He also says that all
"enemy" bases in the region could be targeted by Iranian
Media sources including the Telegraph and the
Australian Broadcasting Company report that Hajizadeh
claimed that "many" such aircraft have been destroyed in the
region. Iran's Fars news agency said the aircraft shot down were
likely performing missions in either Iraq or Afghanistan when they
violated Iranian airspace.
CNN reports that a U.S. military spokesman who requested
anonymity said that coalition forces have not recently lost any
UAVs in the Gulf region, and of those lost previously, none could
be attributed to enemy fire.
