VIDEO: Israel stated that the intercepted Iranian drone was duplicate of US craft

 

Israeli officials stated that the Iranian drone that they shot down appeared to have been developed from technology derived from a US stealth aircraft that was captured by Tehran in 2011, US daily, the Washington Post mentioned.

On Saturday, an Israeli Apache helicopter intercepted an Iranian UAV that was launched from Syria.
A spokesman for Israel’s military and a minister in Israel’s security cabinet said that the Washington Post that the craft was a copy of a US RQ-170 Sentinel spy drone.

However, Iran has reported the Israeli claim as “ridiculous.” The incident led to cross-border confrontations with extensive bombing of Syria by Israel.

The report said that the US drone captured by Iran in 2011 was used by the CIA in an espionage campaign aiming Iran’s nuclear facilities.

The US later requested Iran to return the drone. However Iran’s reply was that the US should instead apologize for invading its airspace.
