Iran has repelled an unidentified aircraft violating the country’s airspace, Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi said on Friday, implicitly confirming a US claim that Iranian forces had fired on a US drone recently.

Tehran is currently investigating the incident, he was quoted by Press TV as saying.

A top military commander said earlier on Friday Iran will stop any attempts to violate its airspace.

“If any foreign aircraft seeks to enter our country’s airspace, our Armed Forces will confront it,” Deputy Chairman of Iranian Armed Forces’ Chiefs of Staff Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri said.

The Iranian Armed Forces will “firmly” respond to any ground, sea or air aggression, he added.
