U.S. AWACS planes shooed away from Iran’s airspace

A senior Iranian air defense commander stressed Iran’s capability to confront US spy planes and drones, and said his forces have so far warned tens of US spy planes, including the advanced Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) aircraft, to keep away from Iranian airspace.

“In the last ten years, we have issued countless warnings even to those US AWACS airplanes which were flying over Iraq’s airspace or along the free airspace of the Persian Gulf,” Commander of Khatam ol-Anbia Air Defense Base Brigadier General Farzad Esmayeeli told FNA, and noted that the spy planes received immediate warnings when they tried to approach Iran’s airspace in violation of the international regulations.

He further reiterated Iran’s high capabilities for combating enemies’ electronic warfare, saying the country has electronic jamming devices which can destroy the GPS systems of hostile aircraft.

Esmayeeli also hailed the successful performance of the Iranian air defense units in pushing back enemy spying operations and shielding the country’s airspace against penetration of enemy spy planes.
