Israel Thwarts Large-Scale Attack by Iranian ‘Killer Drones’
In a rare confirmation, the Israel Defense Forces acknowledged striking Iranian targets in Syria to prevent a “pending, large-scale attack of multiple killer drones on Israel.”
An Iranian drone attack on Israel would have represented a massive escalation in Iran’s efforts to attack the Jewish state.
“The strike targeted Iranian Quds Force operatives and Shiite militias which were preparing to advance attack plans targeting sites in Israel from within Syria over the last number of days,” the IDF said in a statement.
IDF spokesman Jonathan Conricus said Israel possesses information that Iranian forces were prepping to launch “killer drones” packed with explosives and aiming to target northern Israel. He said that Israel had monitored the Iranian drone plan for months and that Iran was prevented last Thursday from carrying out an “advanced attempt” as part of the same plot to strike Israel with drones. On Saturday, Israel became aware of another Iranian attempt to carry out the same attack, with Conricus saying today’s drone plot attempt was “very imminent.”
“This was a significant plan with significant capabilities that had been planned for a few months,” Conricus added. “It was not something done on a low level, but rather top down from the Quds Force.”
