Tehran, Dec 23 – according to reports the Iranian regime air force shot down a drone in central Tehran on Friday. The drone, belonging to a filmmaking studio, apparently was filming a documentary in the central Tehran where it strayed towards, what is called a 'forbidden zone.'
The regime authorities thinking that the drone is possibly armed and 'dangerous' called on the air force to act and shoot down the harmless drone.
These drones are low flying objects and can be reached even by a low powered targeting rifle, needless an air force jet fighter.
Iran's ILNA news agency quoted an unnamed source as saying that the drone was shot down as "it approached the forbidden district" near the office of the supreme leader.
The source later explained that the drone belonged to a documentary-making team that had permission to film but "unintentionally started moving it towards the forbidden zone."
Pasteur Street in central Tehran is highly secured as key government institutions are located there.
