IRGC Aerospace Commander Amir Ali Hajizadeh said on Monday morning that the spy drone downed by his forces the previous day has belonged to Israel.
He said that the unmanned aviation vehicle is one of the Hermes type and capable of flying 1600 km at a time.
Hajizadeh asserted that experts are dismantling the remnants of the drone and trying to restore as much information from them as they can.
Iran’s Defense Minister Hossein Dehqan had on a TV interview on Sunday evening said regarding the drone, "The mere fact that it was found around Natanz reveals its mission. Generally, both Israelis and Americans would like to define a goal for themselves so that they would always be able to say they have been able to enter any part of the country’s aerospace just as they had decided to.”
