On August 31, 2014, Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, spokesperson for the Israel Occupation Force (IOF) announced that IAF shot-down an unmanned aircraft that infiltrated Jewish-occupied Palestine from the Quneitra area near the Syrian border. Lerner claimed that the aircraft belonged to Syrian army but didn’t carry WMDs and most probably wandered into Israeli space.
I’m not sure if the Israeli claim is true or another of its PR to hide its failed drone warfare against Gaza, Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Iraq and Sudan. Last year, the IAF shot-down one of its Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) over sea after its controlled system got jammed by an “enemy army”.
Last weekend, an Iranian surface-to-air missile intercepted and shot-down an Israeli pilotless aircraft flying over Iranian airspace before it reached the Natanz nuclear enrichment plant in central Iran.
David Cenciotti, the founder of Jewish blog Aviationist says that Iran’s predator drone, Shahed 129 it displaced in September 2013, was based on Israeli Elbit Hermes 450 model. One wonders from where Iran received Israeli scientific expertise – may be from Turkey! Oops! How could one forget Israeli claim that Israeli Mossad played Hamas’ illegitimate mother.
Iran’s domestic drone industry, Cenciotti explains, now exports to its allies. Iranian-made UAVs have been spotted in Syria, Venezuela and in the Gaza Strip, where they have been operated by Hamas. The Zionist idiot forgot to mention Hizbullah, Iran’s most trusted Arab ally.
In 2012, Hizbullah sent a spy drone over the Jewish occupied Palestine, which succeeded in avoiding the $1 billion Israeli Iron (Dumb) Dome. British daily the Sunday Times, reported on October 14, 2012 that Hizballah drone ‘Ayyoub’ “was airborne for three hours before being intercepted by an F-16 jet, is believed to have transmitted pictures of preparations for Israel’s biggest joint military exercise with the US army, which began last week, as well as ballistic missile sites, main airfields and, possibly, its nuclear reactor in Dimona“.

According to Drone War UK, Israel has been using “armed drones” for the last 40 years in Gaza. Mary Dobbing, co-author of the report says “Our research shows about 50 of the 76 countries known to have some form of military UAV capability have received drones or drone technology from Israel. Scratch any drone you’ll likely find Israeli technology underneath.”
On March 10, 2014, commander of Israel Air Force air defense array, Maj-General Shachar Shohat, told a security conference at the Institute for National Security Studies Strategic, Innovative Policy-Oriented Research (INSS) that in the next war with Hizbullah or Hamas – Israel would have to face enemy drone carrying explosives.

Despite Israeli claim that its drone attacks in Gaza were to avoid civilian causalities, a US Army study has concluded that drones kill ten times more people than a manned military jet.
