TEHRAN, Feb. 24 (UPI) — A general in the Revolutionary Guards Corps said a foreign surveillance drone was shot down on the first day of military exercises in Iran.

“On the first day of the Great Prophet 8 war games, the I.R.G.C.’s electronic warfare system detected signals showing that alien drones were trying to enter the country,” Brig.Gen. Hamid Sarkheili said Saturday, the semi-official Fars news agency reported. He said the “alien drone” was shot down over the war games zone.

Sarkheili said the I.R.G.C. was in possession of images taken by the drone and if the country’s senior security echelon agree, the images would be released to the public.

Sarkheili did not divulge any further details, such as where the drone may have originated.

The Guards began a three-day military exercise Saturday in the southeast province of Kerman.

Iran has claimed to have captured several U.S. drones, including an advanced RQ-170 Sentinel CIA spy drone in December 2011 and at least three ScanEagle aircraft.
