An Iranian lawmaker said Iran has photos of Israeli military bases and other restricted areas.
Esmail Kowsari, chairman of the Iranian Parliament’s defense committee, told the Iranian Arabic-language Al-Alam that a drone that breached Israeli airspace in October transmitted photos of restricted Israeli military sites before it was shot down, Reuters reported, citing Iran’s Mehr news agency.
Israeli troops shot down the unmanned aerial vehicle, or UAV, on Oct. 6 over the Negev Desert after it entered Israeli airspace near the Mediterranean Sea. The drone was launched from Lebanon in a cooperation between the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and the Lebanon-based terrorist group Hezbollah, the Sunday Times of London reported at the time, citing unnamed sources. — jta
