The Iranian drone

Did Iran yesterday openly launch its war of extermination against Israel?

The sequence of events, according to former IDF spokesman Lt Cl Peter Lerner, was this. Yesterday morning an Iranian drone, an advanced model with stealth capabilities, penetrated into Israel through the border from Jordan. It was intercepted after about a minute and a half in Israeli territory by an IDF attack helicopter.

In the immediate aftermath, the Israel Air Force conducted a targeted strike and destroyed the mobile command vehicle that guided the drone. On its way home, an Israeli F16 fighter jet was downed by massive Syrian anti-aircraft fire. Following this, the IAF conducted a widespread strike against 12 targets in Syria, including three aerial defence batteries and four Iranian positions.

Widespread media misreporting of these events constituted the usual combination of lazy incompetence and malice. Outlets including the New York Times, CNN, the Guardian and BBC News falsely implied that Israel was the aggressor; only by carefully reading these stories could the true sequence of events be discerned.
