Iran claims new drone can fly for 1,250 miles, 24 hours

Hajizadeh, who talked about the new drone as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was attending the United Nations General Assembly, said the new Iranian drone was designed and developed by Iranian scientists.

Hajizadeh did not talk about the U.S.-made drone that Iran captured last December, which the Obama administration requested Tehran return. Iran trotted out the drone on its state TV channels at the time, and there were Iranian claims that it had cracked the drone’s classified technology, although the U.S. said that was unlikely to be true.
