Iran’s Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi on Sunday boasted of his country’s
“capabilities” and claimed Hezbollah had a “natural right” to fly drones over
Israel – following the flight of a hostile unmanned aircraft into Israeli
airspace earlier this month.“The Islamic Republic’s capabilities are
very high, and are in support of the Islamic ummah [collective nation],” Vahidi,
a former commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps, said at a ceremony
to inaugurate new military production units, alluding to Iran’s continued
backing of Hezbollah.
