Israel can expect more drone infiltrations into its airspace in the future, the head of Iran’s Basij militia Mohammed Reza Naqdi said Friday according to Iran’s semi-official Fars news agency.
The IAF shot down a small unmanned aerial vehicle as it flew over southern Israel earlier this month, in one of the most flagrant violations of the nation’s airspace in years.
Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah took credit for sending the drone aircraft into Israel, saying that it was Iranian-made and that it was shot down near the Dimona reactor.
„Zionists must expect hundreds of other drones in 25 different models with new flying systems that they won’t know how to confront them,“ Naqdi told reporters.
He added that the infiltration reflected only a small part of Hezbollah’s capability, and that it dealt a significant blow to Israel, according to Fars.
