Iran displays debris of downed U.S. drones
Iran on Saturday displayed the debris of recently downed drones by its air defense system.
In the showcase, called Hunting Vultures, Iran also displayed the remaining pieces of a U.S. military drone downed by the country's air defense system in June in its southern waters.

On June 21, Iran announced that it had downed a U.S. RQ-4 Global Hawk "spy drone" which had violated Iranian airspace near the Strait of Hormuz.
During the exhibition on Saturday, Islamic Revolution Guards Corps Commander Hossein Salami said Iran will never allow a war on its soil.
Iran will follow and destroy any aggressor who stages even a limited attack on the country, said Salami.
"We will hit anyone who violates our borders," he said, adding Iran has so far demonstrated only part of its military capability.
