An incident: Iran almost shot down a US F-18 Super Hornet (video)

TEHRAN, (BM) – The Iranian military nearly opened fire on a U.S. F-18 Super Hornet jet three days ago after the latter did not obey the warnings from Tehran, learned citing local sources and Iranian TV chamnel.

In a video that was released on the YJC news site, the Iranian military’s air defenses locked in on the U.S. F-18 aircraft and nearly fired on the jet before it turned away from the Iranian border.

The journalist Saeed Biglari said in his Twitter account: “BREAKING: Iran nearly shot down a US F-18 super hornet three days ago when they did not obey commands by Iranian AF. F-18 was coming close to our border at a fast speed, didn’t obey commands to change course, was locked on by radar, got scared and changed course.”

As shown in the video above, a reporter was with the Iranian military’s air defense division during the incident and he later interviewed the commander after the near confrontation.

The U.S. has yet to comment on these accusations; however, this marks the first time that the Iranian and U.S. militaries have come close to a confrontation since the January 8th missile strikes in Iraq.
