Text size Aa Aa

Iran is claiming to have brought down a foreign surveillance drone during a military exercise.

Without mentioning who it belonged to, the official news agency said it was not the first time a drone of what it called “the enemy“had been seized.

In the past Iran has claimed to have captured US drones.

The claim comes amid ongoing tension between world powers and Tehran over its nuclear programme.
