"Westerners have a series of capabilities from long ago which cannot be ignored… for example they have spy drones which can take pictures in some places," IRGC Air Force Commander Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh said on Sunday.

"But they (Westerners) use these [drones] mostly in countries such as Iraq and Afghanistan and they do not dare using these [planes] in our country," Fars News Agency quoted Hajizadeh as saying.

The Iranian commander added that few aggressions have happened against Iran and IRGC has so far downed many of their advanced spy planes.

"For example we shot down two of their planes in the Persian Gulf and this is the first time this incident is [publicly] announced," Hajizadeh said.

He said that the country has reversed engineered the drones it has shot down.
