We obviously have to take everything the Iranians say with a grain of salt.
Via Weekly Standard:
Iran is claiming to have successfully ”hunted” an American drone, according to a piece in the regime organ Fars News Agency. The propaganda outlet claims that this is the first time Iran has shot down an American drone.
“The unmanned surveillance plane lost by the United States in Iran was a stealth aircraft being used for secret missions by the CIA, US officials admitted in December,” writes Fars. “The aircraft is among the highly sensitive surveillance platform in the CIA’s fleet that was shaped and designed to evade enemy defenses.”
