Iran

Iranian authorities showed off US, UK and Israeli-made drones they claim to have downed in earlier times, as tensions with western powers escalate.

This came on the sidelines of the “Sacred Defense Week”; an Iranian annual commemoration of the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq war.

Major General Hussein Salami, Commander-in-chief of the Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution, was pictured standing next to debris of the US-made RQ-4 Global Hawk.

Earlier, Salami warned that Iran will hit back hard at any state that may attack the Islamic Republic.

“Be careful, a limited aggression will not remain limited. We are after punishment and we will continue until the full destruction of any aggressor,” Salami said in remarks broadcast on state TV on Saturday.

Tensions between Iran and the United States have significantly escalated recently as the US government decided to impose a new batch of sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

US President Donald Trump said he expected sanctions to “work” on Iran, adding that he preferred this strategy to one involving military action.

“I think the sanctions work,” Trump said during a joint press conference with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison. “The military would work. That’s a very severe form of winning.”
