Armed drone captured by Assad regime near Golan was Iranian - IDF says


The Israel Defense Forces on Saturday denied any connection to a drone captured by Assad regime near the Israeli Golan Heights, saying it was an Iranian aircraft.


“Today we saw the Syrians (militiamen) prove that Iranian regime's Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Quds Force commander Gen. Qassem] Soleimani does what he wants in Syria and definitely doesn’t tell the Assad regime what he is up to,” wrote the IDF’s Arabic spokesman Avichai Adraee.


Earlier Saturday, Assad news agency SANA claimed Assad militiamen have captured and dismantled a drone rigged with cluster bombs near the border with the Israeli Golan Heights.


Israel frequently conducts airstrikes and missile attacks inside Assad regime's Syria but rarely confirms them. Israel says it targets mostly bases of Iranian militias and the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah in Syria.
