Israel must expect 100s more drones - Iran commander
Following Hezbollah's success in flying an Iranian-made drone over Israel, General Mohammad Reza Naqdi said Tel Aviv must expect hundreds of other drones with which it has no clue how to deal, Press TV reported.
"Zionists must expect hundreds of other drones in 25 different models with new flying systems that they won't know how to confront them," Commander of the Basij Forces Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi told reporters on Friday.
The infiltration of the drone into the airspace of the occupied lands exposed only the smallest part of the power of Hezbollah and the resistance and dealt a heavy blow to the Israeli regime, he added.
Hezbollah recently sent a radar-evading drone deep into the Israeli airspace.
The operation code-named Hussein Ayub saw Hezbollah's drone fly hundreds of kilometers into the Israeli airspace and getting very close to Dimona nuclear plant without being detected by advanced Israeli and US radars, Hezbollah Secretary General Nasrallah said during a televised speech on October 11.
On Sunday, Iran's Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi confirmed that the radar-evading drone had been developed by Iran.
"Given the Zionist regime's frequent incursions into the Lebanese airspace, we see it as the natural right of Lebanon's Hezbollah to fly its drone above the Occupied Territories," the minister added.
