Gen. Hamid Sarkheili, a spokesman for the military exercise, said the Guards electronic warfare unit spotted signals indicating that foreign drones were trying to enter Iranian airspace. Sarkheili said Guard experts took control of one drones navigation system and brought it down near the city of Sirjan where the military drills began on Saturday.
While probing signals in the area, we spotted foreign and enemy drones which attempted to enter the area of the war game, the official IRNA news agency quoted the general as saying. We were able to get one enemy drone to land.
Sarkheili did not say whether the drone was American.
