Iran Rejects Israel’s Claim of Downing Iranian Drone As ‘Ridiculous’
Iran has dismissed as “ridiculous” Israels claims that it had intercepted an Iranian drone launched from Syria.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said: “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”
He also stressed that Iran has advisory presence in Syria at the request of the country’s legitimate and lawful government.
Defending the Syrian army’s reaction to Israel, he 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 type of foreign aggression”
Press TV reports: The Iranian spokesperson emphasized that the “illegitimate” Israeli regime cannot cover up its atrocities and crimes against Muslim nations in the region by playing a blame game and spreading lies.
