Tehran’s interim Friday Prayers Leader Hojjatoleslam Kazem Seddiqi has described the downing of an US reconnaissance drone as a source of pride for the Iranian nation.

Referring to the successful capture of a hard-to-detect US RQ-170 Sentinel aircraft by the Iranian Army’s electronic warfare unit on Sunday, Seddiqi said, “This unmanned US aircraft was radar-evading and on a spying mission and it was fully equipped [with the latest technology.]”‌

He went on to add that Iranians had in fact hunted down a US “hunter falcon”‌, which “is one of the most advanced US espionage and military weapons.”‌

Pointing to the terrorist attacks and bombings in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan on Ashura and Tasua, which left scores of mourners injured and countless others dead, Hojjatoleslam Seddiqi Said, “The blood of these innocents is on the hands of and such atrocities are the work of the advocates of human rights who are responsible for all assassinations and massacres.”‌

He also commended the measure taken by Iran’s Majlis to downgrade ties with Britain as a “brave and wise”‌ decision, and said that this was a gift to the Iranian nation from their representatives in parliament.

“The UK has never left fond memories in the minds of the Muslims and especially the Iranian nation,”‌ he added
