Israeli assessment: Iran behind downed drone

Assessments that Iran is behind the launch of the unmanned drone into Israel airspace Thursday is gaining popularity among Israel's senior military and political echelons.

According to current assessments, the drone, which was downed by an IAF F-16 jet a few kilometers west of Haifa's shore line, was sent by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, in contradiction to previous assessments that Hezbollah was behind the launch.

The Iranian forces, it is believed, are active on Lebanese soil in an attempt to assist Assad's Syrian regime as well as Hezbollah, and according to assessments they are charged with developing Hezbollah's drone capabilities, both in terms of hardware and know-how.

The terrorist Shiite group was quick to deny it was behind or even involved in Thursday's launch, and the IDF 's spokesperson unit was also careful not to directly attribute the drone to the organization.

1. What goes around comes around.

 

Military supremacy never lasts. Our drone policies have established a very bad precedent that will be followed by other nations in pursuit of their own goals.
