Iran Claims Its Drone Transmitted Pictures of Restricted IDF Sites

Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi said Iran possesses unmanned aerial vehicles which are far more advanced than the one recently sent into Israel.

Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi said on Sunday that Iran has in its possession UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) which are far more advanced than the one which the Hezbollah recently sent into Israel.

“Definitely, the technology of the drone which recently flew into the ‘Quds occupier regime’ by the Lebanese resistance movement and amazed the enemies is not the newest Iranian technology,” Vahidi noted.

On October 6, a Hezbollah drone penetrated Israeli airspace and, according to the Iranian news agency Mehr, came “very close to the Dimona nuclear plant without being detected by advanced Israeli and U.S. radar systems.”

The IDF Spokesperson’s office reported at the time that the drone was seen on Israel’s radar the entire time, and the IAF was waiting for an opportunity to shoot it down where it won’t cause damage to people or property.

The Iranian defense minister said Israel had made a lot of publicity over its Iron Dome air defense shield but the infiltration of the drone into the country “proved scandalous for Tel Aviv.

Iranian foreign minister Ali Akbar Salehi said on October 21 that “the UAV that recently was able to penetrate into the occupying regime frightened the Zionist regime.”

On Monday Mehr quoted Esmail Kowsari, chair of the Iranian parliament’s defense committee, who said that Iran holds pictures of Israeli bases and other restricted areas, transmitted from the drone launched into Israeli airspace.

“These aircraft transmit their pictures online, and right now we possess pictures of restricted areas,” Kowsari said.

Reuters commented that Iran’s military regularly announces defense and engineering developments, but some analysts are “skeptical of the reliability of such reports.”

    Well, America has and by now Israel has also pictures with sound and demonstrations of all secret operations in the restricted facilities in Iran. Ahmadinejad's personal camera man should be awarded the film maker of the year after his defection to the USA.
