The defense minister, Ahmad Vahidi, said to have more advanced drone that Hezbollah shot down by Israel
With this technology coming from the US made drones design and being copied by the Iraneans they have the same capability as the US. This solidifies their prowess and ability to strike Isarel.
Iran has drones with much more advanced technology than the drone was shot down by Hezbollah earlier this month when he entered Israeli airspace, reported the Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi.
“Today the Islamic Republic has available drone technology far more advanced than that Hezbollah forces sent to the airspace of the Zionist regime (Israel),” Vahidi said, quoted by IRNA news agency.
“Undoubtedly, the technology in the drone Hezbollah (Lebanese Shiite group) … was not the latest technology from Iran, “he said.
Hezbollah claimed responsibility for the aircraft, saying that his pieces were manufactured and assembled in Iran in Lebanon.
The Iranian news agency Mehr said the drone of Hezbollah came very close to Israel’s Dimona nuclear plant without being detected by the advanced radar systems Israelis and Americans.
For the Iranian Minister of Defense, “the power of Hezbollah shows the drone flying ‘Ayub’ in heaven exploded when hit by Israeli forces this false regime”.
The acting commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, Gen. Hossein Salami, warned Israel that they “definitely” will face harsh reprisals if it attacks Iran’s nuclear facilities.
An attack on Iran will accelerate the annihilation of the Israeli regime since it lacks a strong defense strategy, military said.
The commander said Iran is more prepared than ever with military equipment and infrastructure, and emphasized that there is no vulnerability in the defense system of the country, reported the semi-official news agency ISNA .
Israel has repeatedly threatened to carry out an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities, under the idea that its true purpose is military.
Salami added that Israel has engaged in a campaign of psychological warfare and in a game of political deception against the Islamic Republic, which has failed fully but has strengthened Iran’s leadership.
