Iran claims drone sent pictures of 'secret' IDF bases

Iran is claiming that a drone that was shot down by Israel transmitted pictures of 'sensitive' IDF bases before it was shot down.
The drone transmitted pictures of Israel's "sensitive bases" before it was shot down, said Esmail Kowsari, chair of parliament's defense committee, according to Iran's Mehr news agency. He was speaking to Iran's Arabic-language Al-Alam, Mehr reported on Monday.
"These aircraft transmit their pictures online, and right now we possess pictures of restricted areas," Kowsari was quoted as saying.


Iran's military regularly announces defense and engineering developments though some analysts are skeptical of the reliability of such reports.
On Sunday Iranian Defense Minister Ahmad Vahidi said the downed drone did not represent Iran's latest know-how in drone technology, according to Mehr.
In April, Iran announced it had started to build a copy of a US surveillance drone, the RQ-170 Sentinel, captured last year after it came down near the Afghan border.
I'll believe it when I see it. If they really had those kinds of pictures, they wouldn't be bragging about it.
