(MENAFN - Arab News) TEHRAN: Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard said it has brought down an Israeli stealth drone above the Natanz uranium enrichment site in the center of the country.

'A spy drone of the Zionist regime (Israel) was brought down by a missile... This stealth drone was trying to approach the Natanz nuclear zone' the corps said in a statement on its official website sepahnews.com.

'This act demonstrates a new adventurism by the Zionist regime... The Revolutionary Guard and the other armed forces reserve the right to respond to this act' the statement added.

Natanz is Iran's main uranium enrichment site housing more than 16000 centrifuges. Around 3000 more are at the Fordo plant buried inside a mountain and hard to destroy. Israel has ofen threatened to attack Iranian nuclear installations.


Iran and the P51 powers Britain China France Russia the United States and Germany reached a six-month interim agreement under which Iran suspended part of its nuclear activities in return for a partial lifting of international sanctions.

In July that deal was extended by four months until Nov. 24 to give the two sides more time to negotiate a final accord aimed at ending 10 years of tensions over Iran's nuclear program.

The sides remain split on how much uranium enrichment Iran should be allowed to carry out.

Washington wants Tehran to slash its program by three-quarters but Iran wants to expand enrichment ten-fold by 2021 chiefly to produce fuel for its Bushehr nuclear power plant.
