ran has warned that shooting down the US drone last week was not accidental, and it can repeat in the future.
Navy commander Rear Admiral Hossein Khanzadi said on Monday that downing the US drone was a “firm response” to Washington.
Last Thursday, Iran shot down a US drone near the Gulf amid increasing tensions between the sides. Washington said later it cancelled a retaliatory strike on Iranian forces.
However, President Donald Trump announced new sanctions on Iran in response to the drone downing.
“Everyone saw the downing of the unmanned drone,” the Iranian commander was quoted by Tasnim.
“I can assure you that this firm response can be repeated, and the enemy knows it.”
