JF-17 fighter jet of Pakistan Air Force shoots down Iran-made spy drone

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.
