Iran captures intruding US drone over Persian Gulf waters

By Press TV

Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) has captured a US ScanEagle drone over the Persian Gulf waters upon its intrusion into the Iranian airspace.

 

IRGC Navy Commander Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi made the announcement on Tuesday, adding that the Iranian armed forces enjoy full intelligence command over foreign movements in the Persian Gulf region.

Referring to the captured ScanEagle drone, the Iranian commander pointed out, “Such drones are usually launched from large aircraft carriers.”

The ScanEagle drone, which has a 10ft (3m) wingspan, is a long-endurance aircraft built by Insitu, a subsidiary of Boeing.

Iran has released footage of the captured drone.

A report on the website of the Wall Street Journalon Sunday cited US officials as saying that Washington has stepped up its spying operations on Bushehr nuclear plant in southern Iran “over the past two months”.

The report said that the increased spying missions by the US on the Iranian nuclear facility “has been conducted in part with the Pentagon’s fleet of drones operating over the Persian Gulf.”

Commander Fadavi further said that the IRGC Navy is fully monitoring all the movements of the foreign forces in the Persian Gulf and the strategic Strait of Hormuz to counter any potential threats against the country.

Earlier in December 2011, the Iranian military also grounded a US RQ-170 Sentinel stealth aircraft while it was flying over the Iranian city of Kashmar, some 140 miles (225km) from the Afghan border.

The US RQ-170 Sentinel stealth aircraft was downed with minimal damage by the Iranian Army’s electronic warfare unit. The drone was one of America’s most advanced spy aircraft.

Last month, Iran repelled a US drone that had entered the country’s airspace above the territorial waters of the Islamic Republic in the Persian Gulf.

Brigadier General Amirali Hajizadeh, the commander of the Aerospace Division of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), said that the drone had been driven away by Iranian forces as it attempted to gather intelligence around Kharg Island in southern Iran.

Hajizadeh also warned that the country’s armed forces would respond with stronger action if US drones attempted to violate Iran’s airspace again.

  1. how were these drones captures? I do not see any damage.

  2. I would not be surprised if Mc Cain, Cantor, Harman or AIPAC asks the DoD to explain “why the US Govt is giving drones away to Iran”.

    They might even say that president Obama is doing it on purpose, so Iran can do reverse engineering on them to gain a tech edge over Israel…

    The next they will ask Congress for, is more money to Talmudlandia to make sure that it can respond to the “existential threat” for IsraHell, represented by “drone equipped” Iran…

  3. Geez. Didn’t the Iranians ever hear that stealing is wrong? I think they should send that drone back to its rightful owners in Tel Aviv. Along with a little “thank you” note written on plutonium cargo.

  4. Iran has 615 miles of coastline with the Persian Gulf.

    We have zero miles of coastline with the Persian Gulf.

    Americans have no interest in a war with Iran, quite the opposite. American interests dictate a reconciliation with Iran or, at worse, a peace abroad so we can focus on our domestic issues.

    The American military is supposed to be under civilian leadership.

    The Zionists and Neocons have corrupted this American principle wholesale. Its entrenched “geeks” in think tanks have subjugated American military strength.

    I am curious if this drone was rogue. That is, part of the same factions that increasingly are doing things to throw a lit match on a powder keg and to walk away. After all, who is historically the meddlesome interlocutor?

    If you guessed Nibiru, you’ve been listening to Zionist Sitchen’s distraction ploys too long. If you guessed “the Nazi continuum”, you’ve been sipping LSD with crypto-Zionist Michael Shrimpton. If you guessed “the bankers”, then you have a lot of new pals on this site posing as friends.

    If you answered Zionist, you are well-researched, can name the individuals behind it all, likely, and should now demand accountability. Demand also, that President Obama create a red line with Iran so that the Zionist ploys are all deaded/86’d.

    • May we call this: “Treason by Members of the United States Congress”???

      • Members of the Congress, yes. The United States? They jest. This is a result of Zionist corruption, not the American way. Let’s not blur the two please.

  5. You can buy better drones at Costco under $300
