For the third time in a week, an Israeli unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) was reportedly shot down, this time in Iraq, near the Baghdad Airport, according to the Iranians.
According to reports by the Iran state-run FARS news agency and the Lebanon-based Al-Mayadeen television network, the UAV was a Hermes model drone. U.S. embassy personnel went to the site to collect the remains.
A drone was allegedly shot down by Iran’s Revolutionary Guard on Monday as it was approaching the Natanz uranium enrichment nuclear plant.
Also this week, the Izz a-Din al-Qassam military wing of the Hamas terrorist organization that rules Gaza claimed it ‘seized’ a “Zionist reconnaissance plane” in eastern Gaza City.
Of course, Iran has a history of making up these type of news and victory stories, so we’re taking these drone reports with a big grain of salt.
