TEHRAN – Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi said on Sunday that Iran has in its possession UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) which are far more advanced than the one which the Hezbollah resistance movement recently sent into Israel.
“Definitely, the technology of the drone which recently flew into the Quds occupier regime by the Lebanese resistance movement and amazed the enemies is not the newest Iranian technology,” Vahidi noted.
On October 6 a Hezbollah aircraft drone penetrated hundreds of kilometers into Israeli airspace and gotten very close to the Dimona nuclear plant without being detected by advanced Israeli and U.S. radar systems.
The defense minister said Israel had made a lot of publicity over its Iron Dome air defense shield but the infiltration of the drone into the country proved scandalous for Tel Aviv.
Vahidi told Iranian television on October 14 that Israel “was defeated in this respect and it can no longer bully Islamic nations."
On October 21 Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi also said, “The UAV that recently was able to penetrate into the occupying regime frightened this regime, and the Zionist regime had put itself in such a situation (in relation to) its people that its weakness and desperateness were quite evident.”
