The next day, while all the news agencies, including the Tasnim and Fars news agencies, also wrote about the crash of an unidentified drone Fars News Agency wrote:
Yesterday, an unmanned aerial vehicle belonging to the Revolutionary Guards Corps air force made an emergency landing near the village of Magranat in the Shoaybiyeh district of Shushtar province in Khuzestan province.
This was an Iranian UAV and the rumors that it was targeted and overthrown are untrue.
It is clear that this UAV has no sign and so on. Even local Revolutionary Guards forces have failed to recognize that the UAV belonged to the IRGC, but why ?
A source from the Quds Force of the Revolutionary Guards sent information to “Iran briefing”, which indicates that the UAV was prepared to attack the US consulate in “Basra” but in Shushtar, it fell out of the orbit and crashed.
“Iran Briefing” cannot independently reject, or confirm, the information., But why should an armed drone of the Revolutionary Guards fly without a logo in the Iranian sky that even the local Revolutionary Guards cannot identify it, or be notified of the fall by the Revolutionary Guards’ air force?
This can be some kind of confirmation of the information received that UAV was going on a military mission overseas and, because of the Revolutionary Guards’ efforts to not be identified, was flying without any identification marks.
