Armed Iranian Drones Flying Over Israel – Netanyahu


Netanyahu says he shot down (personally?) one of these over Tel Aviv yesterday, launched from inside Iran, fully armed.

RT: Iran has unveiled three new defense capabilities amid ongoing tensions with the US, including the ‘Quds’ radar system, a surface-to-air missile system dubbed ‘9-Day,’ and a drone called ‘Gaza’ with a 2,000km operating range.

In a ceremony on Friday, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), in the presence of Commander-in-Chief Major General Hossein Salami, unveiled three new pieces of defense hardware developed in Iran.

Among them is a new drone named ‘Gaza’, reportedly capable of various surveillance, combat, reconnaissance missions with a flight duration of 35 hours. The indigenously made UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) proudly displays its name along the fuselage.

Iranian media claims the drone can fly more than 2,000km, carrying 13 bombs, in combat missions, as well as 500kg of reconnaissance and communications equipment. The drone’s range puts Israel’s most populated city of Tel Aviv within operating range.

Iran also showed off its new, indigenously developed ‘9-Day’ surface-to-air missile system, which is reportedly capable of intercepting close-range threats such as cruise missiles, aircraft bombs, and UAVs.

Salami was also present for the unveiling of the ‘Quds’ radar system, which has been produced for fast deployment and can be moved quickly.

Iran prides itself on its indigenously built defense capabilities and has publicly rolled out numerous new systems over the past year amid increasing tensions with the US and its allies. In February, Iran unveiled 340 new missile-firing speedboats shortly after the launch of the forward-base ship, ‘Makran’, a 228-meter converted oil tanker.

  1. So it seems that at the present time Iran is the only frontier that stands between the “Elder of ziyon” plan of complete domination of the world and enslavement of human race. Today it’s the imprisoned Palestinians and if left unchallenged tomorrow will be the rest of us the goyim.

  2. Good thing about Iran is it does not “sell” weapons to poor nations, but rather teaches them how to do it! This is the best way to make these nations self-sufficient and able to stand up against bullies and be independent (e.g. Yemen). Bibi can talk all he wants, but everybody knows that Israel’s “unbreakable” Iron dome has been broken and it will continue to be broken no matter what it’s called. Netanyahu must learn from Hitler’s courageous last act or Japanese harikari and exit the scene!

  3. Funny, I thought that Tel Aviv was near the Israeli coast, not near the Jordanian border. Jerusalem Post says the drone was shot down between the Jordanian/Israeli border. Per the Jerusalem Post…”At the time, residents of Beit She’an – which sits within the regional council – were instructed to lock themselves in their homes for nearly an hour, before the IDF announced that the area had been secured, and that it was again safe for people to leave their homes.” Would Bibi lie to us or is this a different drone?
