Clarification on Drone Crash

Clarification on Drone Crash

An official denied reports that an unmanned aerial vehicle that had gone down in the southwestern province of Khuzestan came from abroad.
Governor of Shoush Reza Nejati also told IRNA on Saturday that the Iranian drone had crashed on the outskirts of Shoush on Friday. Nejati dismissed as rumors reports that the UAV had been hit by a missile. He added that according to investigations, the drone, which was on a training mission, had crashed due to technical faults.
The official noted that the crash caused no casualty or damage to property on the ground. Nejati made the statements after earlier reports claimed that a foreign surveillance drone crashed near the border with Iraq.
Iran has in the past brought down a number of aircraft that violated its airspace. In Oct. 2014, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps said its forces had intercepted and shot down an Israeli spy drone.
The IRGC also captured a US ScanEagle drone over the Persian Gulf waters upon its intrusion into Iranian airspace in Dec. 2012.
