Iran says it has ‘far more advanced’ technology than recent Hezbollah drone

( Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi said the Hezbollah drone recently shot down in Israeli airspace “was not Iran’s latest technology,” according to Iran’s Mehr news agency.

The Islamic Republic “currently possesses unmanned aircraft with technology that is far more advanced than the drone recently sent by Hezbollah forces to fly in the skies of the Zionist regime (Israel),” Vahidi said Sunday.

An Israeli warplane jet brought down the drone in the Hebron Hills, not far from the Jewish state’s nuclear reactor site at Dimona. Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said the drone would “not be the last.”

“We can reach any place we want,” Nasrallah said.
