Iran shoos away intruding F-18 fighter jet

Iran shoos away intruding F-18 fighter jet
Tasnim The Islamic Republic of Irans Air Defense has shooed away an intruding F-18 fighter jet over the Persian Gulf, IRIB reported.

A video released by the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) showed a foreign F-18 warplane approaching the Iranian airspace over the countrys southern waters on March 20.

The Iranian Air Defense has given several warnings to the intruding aircraft and has forced the warplane to stay away from the countrys airspace.

The intruding jet has immediately changed its course after being threatened by the Iranian Air Defense which was prepared to fire missiles.

Iranian military technicians have in recent years made great headways in manufacturing a broad range of indigenous equipment, making the armed forces self-sufficient in the arms sphere.

Tehran has always assured other nations that its military might poses no threat to regional countries, saying that the Islamic Republics defense doctrine is entirely based on deterrence.
