TEHRAN – Iran will put on public display two US Navy drones shot down by its elite Revolutionary Guards, a top Iranian commander said on Saturday.

“The planes that were shot down are among the most modern US navy drones and have a long-range capability,” Ali Fadavi, commander of Guards’ naval forces, was quoted as saying by Fars news agency.

On January 2, the head of Guards air force said the elite unit had downed two “Western spy” drones. He had not said when the two drones were actually shot down.

“These aircraft are in our possession and at an appropriate time they will be displayed” to the public, Fadavi said, rejecting Western media reports that quoted Washington officials denying the drones were shot down by Iranian forces.
