(MENAFN - The Peninsula) Iran's Revolutionary Guards claimed yesterday that an Israeli stealth drone had been brought down above the Natanz uranium enrichment site.

The semi-official Fars news agency said elite forces had intercepted and brought down an unmanned aircraft belonging to "the Zionist regime".

The incident was announced in a statement issued by the guards, but it was not clear when it happened.

"This mischievous act once again reveals the adventurist nature of the Zionist regime [of Israel] and added another black pge to this fake and warmongering regime's file which is full of crimes," said the statement.


The state news agency ISNA said the aircraft was "of the stealth, radar-evasive type and intended to penetrate the off-limits nuclear area in Natanz ... but was targeted by a ground-to-air missile before it managed to enter the area."

A spokesman for the Revolutionary Guards told Iranian television that parts of the aircraft had been retrieved. Iran claimed to have reverse engineered a drone after capturing an American RQ-170 Sentinel in 2011.
