BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:30 P.M.) – The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) unveiled a never before seen video of the domestically-made Khorad missile system, which brought down a U.S. drone over the Strait of Hormuz last year.
The footage shows some of the stages of research that led to the system’s development, as well as pictures of its transfer to some southern regions along the Gulf waters.
The Revolutionary Guards presented the system to the public near the tourist site of the “Persian Gulf Martyrs”, west of Tehran.
The IRGC shot down the Global Hawk drone while it was flying over the Strait of Hormuz last year.
Iran said the drone had violated its airspace, while the U.S. maintains that the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) was flying over international airspace.
