The Israel Defense Forces hinted Saturday night that although Israel had nothing to do with a drone attack on Syria earlier in the day, the same could not be said for the Islamic Republic of Iran.
IDF Arabic language spokesperson Avichai Adraee hinted in a statement posted to the Twitter social networking site that the UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle), shot down by Syrian regime forces in Quneitra province near Mount Hermon, had been Iranian.
“Today we saw the Syrians prove that [Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Quds Force commander General Qassem] Soleimani does what he wants in Syria, and definitely doesn’t tell the Assad regime what he is up to,” Adraee tweeted.

According to the state-run Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), “engineering units dismantled the drone which was loaded with bombs and with a highly explosive C4 amount to prevent dismantling it.”
