RNA – The Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom have praised the Islamic Revolutionary ‎Guards Corps (IRGC) for shooting down a trespassing American surveillance drone over the ‎country’s southern territorial waters.‎

On June 20, 2019, the IRGC shot down a United States RQ-4A Global Hawk BAMS-D ‎surveillance drone with a Khordad-3 surface-to-air missile over the Strait of Hormuz. Iranian ‎officials claimed that the drone violated their airspace, while American officials claimed that ‎the drone was in international airspace. ‎
‎ ‎
The text of the statement of the Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom ‎is as follows:‎

In the Name of God, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful‎

As a powerful political system, the sacred system of the Islamic Republic of Iran has a ‎thorough understanding of the policies of the United States and the arrogant front and ‎considers the dramatic and hypocritical remarks by American officials as media and political ‎rhetoric. In this regard, Iran deeply believes that the only effective and rational strategy to ‎combat the United States is active resistance and revolutionary diplomacy. ‎

A real and pure example of revolutionary diplomacy is the explicit, clear and wise statements ‎made by the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Khamenei, during his ‎meeting with the Prime Minister of Japan [Shinzō Abe], which foiled Trump’s devious plot ‎which was presented under the cover of fraudulent diplomacy. Once again, he demonstrated ‎a few of the blessings of the Supreme Leader and Wilayat al-Faqih al-Mutlaqah (Absolute ‎Guardianship of the Jurisprudent) in protecting the Islamic Revolution and Islam. This ‎revolutionary approach, along with military and defensive power, in turn, has made Iran an ‎influential player in the developments in the region and the world.‎

In this regard, the downing of the modern and costly American spy drone, which is only one ‎corner of the strength and advancement of the defence industry and the defence of the ‎armed forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran, showed that the accurate, precise and entirely ‎Iranian-produced missiles will neutralize all forms of aggression and threats and the enemies ‎will be forced to retreat. Now the United States has realized that the option of war and ‎threats will not have any effect on the resistance of the Iranian nation and Iran will not leave ‎any threat at any level unanswered. With the downing of the advanced American drone, ‎Iran’s message of missile power was communicated to the entire world once again and the ‎sleep of Israel and the regional branch of the arrogant powers was disturbed.‎

The Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom ‎offers its appreciation and thanks to the IRGC for ‎their decisive and revolutionary action, especially the powerful Aerospace Force of the IRGC. ‎The arrogant regime of the United States and its allies know that Iran’s ground, sea and sky ‎borders are in the hands of the powerful armed forces of Iran, which provides the most ‎secure and stable position for the allies and peoples of this land and a formidable and hellish ‎battlefield for the aggressors and malicious people.‎
‎ ‎
May the peace, mercy and blessings of God be with you,‎
Mohammad Yazdi ‎
Head of the Supreme Council of the Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom ‎
