A top military commander says recent rumors about Israeli warplanes having made undetected incursions into Iran's airspace are not worthy of a response.

Earlier in the month, a Kuwaiti newspaper alleged that Israeli F-35 aircraft had flown over Iran without being detected by either the Islamic Republic or a Russian radar apparatus based in Syria.

"In recent days, rubbish talk was heard from some media outlets of the enemies regarding the flight of certain aircraft in the country, which was not worth a response," General Farzad Esmaili said on Monday.

"But I am saying this right here that if a country makes an idiotic move and its aircraft approaches Iran, the country's air defense which is the first frontline will deliver a crushing response," said Esmaili who is the commander of the Khatam al-Anbiya Air Defense Base.

"And this rubbish talk has no place other than in those devilish and delusional media outlets," he added.
