g_image (1)Any drone crossing into Iranian airspace will receive a sharp counterblow, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast told reporters, according to Iran’s news agency Mehr.

In response to a journalist’s question about Azerbaijani drones crossing into Iranian airspace, Mehmanparast said, in part, “To cross into our airspace, they should first of all be able to disorient our defense systems. Those who will cross into our airspace will receive a sharp counterblow, taking into consideration the capabilities of Iran’s Armed Forces in defending the borders of our country.”

According to Iranian parliament’s official website, commenting on the report that Azerbaijan is using drones to carry out spying missions along its border with Iran, Chairman of Iran’s Majlis Defense Committee Esmail Kowsari said on Tuesday that “the Azerbaijani drones will suffer the same fate as the American ones.”
