Tehran Rejects Israeli Claim of Downing Iranian Drone as ‘Ridiculous’

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi dismissed as “ridiculous” the Israeli regime’s claim on Saturday that it had intercepted an Iranian drone launched from Syria.

"The claim about the flight of an Iranian drone and Iran’s involvement in the downing of a Zionist fighter jet is so ridiculous that it does not merit a comment,” Qassemi said on Saturday.

“This is because the Islamic Republic of Iran has advisory presence in Syria at the request of the country’s legitimate and lawful government,” he added.

He further defended the Syrian army’s reaction to Israel, and said, “The government and army of Syria, as an independent country, have a legitimate right to defend (the country’s) territorial integrity and counter any kind of foreign aggression.”
