'Iran has advanced drone technology'

Iran possesses drones that are far more advanced than the unmanned aircraft Iranian-backed Hezbollah launched into Israeli airspace this month, Iran’s defence minister was quoted as saying on Sunday.

Iran’s military regularly announces defence and engineering developments though some analysts are skeptical of the reliability of such reports.Earlier this month, Israel shot down a drone after it flew 25 miles into the Jewish state. Lebanese militant group Hezbollah claimed responsibility for the aircraft, saying its parts had been manufactured in Iran and assembled in Lebanon.

Iranian Defence Minister Ahmad Vahidi said the downed drone did not use his country’s latest know-how, according to a report from Iran’s Mehr news agency on Sunday.
