Iran Claims to Have Captured Foreign Drone

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard said on Saturday that it had captured a foreign unmanned aircraft during a military exercise in southern Iran.

According to a report in the official Iranian IRNA news agency, the Guard’s electronic warfare unit spotted signals indicating that foreign drones were trying to enter Iranian airspace. Guard experts took control of one drone’s navigation system and brought it down.

The report did not say whether the drone was American. The United States refused later to respond to the report.
