Chief of Staff of Iranian Armed Forces Mohammad Bagheri on Friday vowed to respond to any U.S. "hostile action" towards Iran's drones, Tasnim news agency reported.

Making the remarks about the U.S. claims concerning the destruction of Iranian drones, Bagheri said that "if the Americans take action against the Iranian drones, the armed forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran will respond to this hostile action, and we reserve the right to confront and take revenge."

The U.S. Central Command on Wednesday announced that it had shot down an Iranian drone heading towards Erbil, the capital of Iraq's semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan.

Bagheri also stressed that "if a hostile action against Iran, its national security and national interests takes place from the American bases in neighboring countries, we will definitely respond to those bases."
