Iran launched ScanEagle drone production line: commander

TEHRAN, Dec. 17 (Xinhua) -- Iran has launched the production line of ScanEagle drones, a commander was quoted Monday by Press TV as announcing.

Navy Commander of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, said that "the production line of ScanEagle drones has been launched in Iran."

The U.S. ScanEagle drone, one of which was recently captured by the IRGC in the Persian Gulf, was the third aircraft of its kind downed by Iranian forces, Fadavi was quoted as saying.

On Dec. 4, Iran's local media said that the naval force of IRGC had downed an U.S. drone over the Persian Gulf in Iran's waters. Iran's state TV also released a footage of the captured drone.

But Western reports quoted a spokesman for the U.S. Navy as denying the Iranian claims.
