Pakistan Confirms Downing Iran Drone

Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed the country's Air Force shot down an unmanned Iranian drone in southwestern Baluchistan province.  The Pakistani Air Force initially declined comment, after reports emerged on Tuesday that one of its jets shot down the drone. But on Wednesday, the ministry's spokesman, Nafees Zakaria, released a statement on the matter, according to AP.  He said the drone was downed Monday as it flew up to 4 kilometers, or 2.5 miles, inside Pakistani territory, in the Panjgur sector close to the Pakistani-Iranian border. Zakaria said Pakistani authorities have shared the information with Iran about striking down the drone.   Iran has expressed concern over militants operating along the Pakistani border and warned that the country was willing to strike militants inside Pakistan — remarks that drew protests from Islamabad.
