Iran Says It Shot Down Israeli Spy Drone


israeli-air-force-dronesIran said on today that it shot down an Israeli spy drone that was heading for its Natanz nuclear enrichment site, Iranian media reported. “The downed aircraft was of the stealth, radar-evasive type and it intended to penetrate the off-limits nuclear area in Natanz … but was targeted by a ground-to-air missile before it managed to enter the area,” state news agency ISNA said, citing a statement by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, Reuters reported.

The Natanz facility is one issue at the heart of a long-running dispute between Iran and countries that believe it is seeking nuclear weapons capability, something Tehran denies.

The Revolutionary Guards said of the drone incursion: “This wily act further exposed the Zionist regime’s adventurous temperament and added yet another black page to a record filled with crime and mischief.”

  1. Iran is again demonstrating its deep desire to keep its nuclear weapons program secret, lest proof leak to the world of how far advanced it is in its work, even all the while negotiating with the West. The truth is that Iran is steadfast in its commitment to obtain nuclear weapons and the missile systems to deliver a warhead, most especially on Israel and Saudi Arabia. Recent events in Iraq, Syria and Libya demonstrate the danger of spreading radical Islam and funding and arming avowed terrorist groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah. The shoot down of the drone is just a small symptom of a much larger problem that will only grow progressively worse unless Iran and its religious theocracy is addressed.
