IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Jan 16, IRNA -- Acting commander of the Armed Forces Headquarters, Major General Gholamali Rashid said on Sunday that two unmanned airplanes of alien countries had been toppled by the Air Force of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC).

Major General Rashid noted that the airplanes were shot down in the Persian Gulf by the IRGC air defense system.

Asked whether the Russian had asked for purchasing the remains of the toppled American drones, he said that of course it is true that the Russians lag behind production of drones from the US and even the Zionist regime and they might want to try to gain access to the latest technology of drones.

He, however, denied knowing about any offer by the Russians for purchase of such airplanes.

A commander of IRGC Air Force had previously reported hitting two drones in the Persian Gulf waters.
