Tuesday afternoon, a senior Iranian military spokesperson said that Iranian-made surveillance drones have made “dozens of apparently undetected flights into Israeli airspace from Lebanon in recent years to probe air defenses and collect reconnaissance data.”
Israeli officials have brushed this off as false information not worthy of an official response.
Additional details were not given on these missions or the capabilities of the said drones by the Iranians.
An Israeli security personage totally rejected these claims, saying last week’s interception of a drone was the first time such an infiltration has happened. He told an international news service that “Israel spotted the unmanned aircraft well before it entered Israeli airspace, determined it was not dangerous and then shot it down over uninhabited desert according to plan.” The official spoke on condition of anonymity because an Israeli military investigation is still under way.
