Pakistan Air Force shot down an Iranian spy drone flying in Panjgur airspace.

The incident is first of its kind in the history of two Islamic countries, which share a 900-km-long porous border.

A JF-17 fighter jet shot down a spy drone belonging to the Iranian regime. Pakistan Defence, a military analysis group, reported, “Air Force JF-17 Thunder fighter intercepted an armed Government of Iran drone 49km inside Pakistan & shot it down for showing hostile intent.”

Security forces took custody of the debris after discovering the wreckage, but it is still unclear when the drone was shot down.
