The Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) on Thursday broadcast footage showing the remains of the American spy drone downed in June 2019 by the IRGC Aerospace Force.

A small part of the drone’s wreckage had been put on display a day after the shooting down.

The IRGC said on June 20 that a US spy drone that violated the Iranian territorial airspace in the early hours of the day was shot down by the IRGC Aerospace Force’s air defense unit near the Kooh-e-Mobarak region in the southern province of Hormozgan.

The intruding drone was reportedly shot by Iran’s homegrown air defense missile system “Khordad-3rd”.
