Irans Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) says the intelligence acquired by its drones in Syria and Iraq has forced the US military to bomb one of its own drones.
That was announced by IRGC Aerospace Commanded Brigadier General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh in a Thursday ceremony held in Hamadan.
"Seven or eight aerial vehicles [belonging to the US-led coalition] with regular flights in Syria and Iraq were under our [intelligence] control; we could monitor their data, and managed to acquire their first-hand information, Hajizadeh said, highlighting the IRGCs influence in the two Arab states.
According to the top general, one of these drones was once forced to have an emergency landing due to a problem during the flight.
As shown in a drone footage released by the IRGC, the drone was hardly landed in a desert area 10 km from the US base.
However, the Americans did not dare to approach their own drone because of the IRGCs intelligence, and thus bombed it with a jet fighter.
The following footage shows the IRGC drone had full control over the American UAV:
