Iranian Army Shoots Down a Drone over Southern Port City of Mahshahr
By Staff, Agencies
Iranian media reported on Friday that Iran had shot down a drone over its southern port city of Mahshahr, without providing further details.
“Iran’s army has downed an unknown drone in the port city of Mahshahr,” the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported.
Other Iranian news outlets carried the same report.
The Students News Agency ISNA and the Young Journalists Club [YJC], affiliated to Iran’s state broadcasting, said “an unknown flying object” had been shot down by the Iranian army, adding that the report had yet to be confirmed by Iranian officials.
Iran’s Arabic-Language al-Alam TV channel said “residents of Imam Khomeini port city heard the sound of a missile being fired on Friday morning.”
In June, Iran shot down an unmanned US spy drone, which the elite Revolutionary Guards said was flying over southern Iran.
