The Iranian Army’s Air Defense Force warned off an “intruding” F-18 fighter jet belonging to an unnamed country on March 20.

A video released by Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) on Friday shows an F-18 jet approaching Iranian airspace in the south, being shooed away by the military several times, forcing it to retreat.

Tehran threatened to destroy the fighter if it maintained its initial path towards Iran, according to local media.
