Drone Crashes in Northwestern Ardabil Province

TEHRAN (FNA)- Deputy Governor-General of the Northwestern province of Ardabil Behrouz Nedayee said that a drone crashed in the farmlands of the border county of Parsabad on Tuesday morning.

“A drone crashed 500 meters away from the border village of Uzuntapeh of Parsabad County,” Nedayee told FNA, adding that it is not yet clear to which country it belongs.

He noted that according to the local sources, the unmanned aircraft is related to the Karabakh conflict.

The official made it clear that the Iranian foreign ministry and the border police had already warned the warring sides in the conflict against the violation of Iran's territory as a result of the clashes.

17 days into the Caucasian military conflict, the clashes are on the rise despite the ceasefire that was singed earlier in the week.

Earlier in October, the Iranian foreign ministry repeated the country’s warning to Azerbaijan and Armenia to avoid misfire during military clashes between the two neighbors.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran is seriously and with high sensitivity monitoring the moves at the bordering areas of Iran and declares that any aggression against our country’s territories by any party engaged in the (conflicts in the) region will not be tolerated and we seriously warn all sides to show necessary caring in this regard,” Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said.

He reiterated the need for respecting Azerbaijan’s territorial integrity, watching for civilians’ lives, stopping clashes and starting serious and timed talks, adding that Iran is ready to help achievement of the aforesaid goals.

Deputy Commander of Iran’s Law Enforcement Forces Brigadier General Qassem Rezayee had also late in September warned Armenia and Azerbaijan which have been engaged in clashes to avoid misfire at Iranian bordering areas.
