Unmanned aircraft shot down by F-16 jets in south Israel was apparently launched from Lebanon by Hezbollah, or perhaps even by the Iranians themselves; IDF looking into possibility aircraft was supposed to photograph Dimona reactor
Operating a drone by remote control from such a long distance requires advanced capabilities, which Israel was not aware Hezbollah had acquired...
...The drone was apparently launched by Iran or one of its allies to test the IDF's detection and interception capabilities, and perhaps even to search for specific targets in south Israel. The drone apparently began its flight in Lebanon and then headed in the direction of Gaza's coastline after flying over the Mediterranean Sea. This route was chosen not only because it utilized the depth of the sea's airspace, but also because Israeli UAVs regularly hover above Gaza...
...Hezbollah tried to conceal the fact that it had sent the drone by selecting a long route that passed through the Mediterranean Sea. It wanted the drone to enter Israel near Gaza, perhaps in an attempt to place the blame on Hamas, which is currently considered hostile to elements that are loyal to Iran...
To put it in simple terms for drones, leftists and other miscreants:
• Iran is arming Hezbollah with increasingly sophisticated reconnaissance and weapons-delivery platforms
• Iran is reportedly weeks away from completing its first nuclear weapon
• Iran's proxy terror group -- Hezbollah -- is also operating in Mexico, assisting drug cartels with the construction of car-bombs and other terror tactics
• The administration's "open borders" policy -- and tacit endorsement of illegal immigration -- raises the possibility of terror groups smuggling nuclear weapons into the U.S. through our southern border
