Last Tuesday, the Iranian air defenses shot down a drone near the city of Malakan in the East Azerbaijan province, amid the ongoing tension between neighboring Azerbaijan and Armenia in Nagorno Karabakh.
Military sources said on Iranian state television, “The Iranian defenses shot down the enemy drone while it penetrated the country’s airspace in the northwestern part of the country in East Azerbaijan province.”
The sources did not specify the identity of the drone that was dropped by their air defenses.
A day later, the Iranian air defenses shot down another drone that was seen crossing into the Islamic Republic from neighboring Azerbaijan.
