Netanyahu says Israel intercepted drone sent by Iran

Source: The Hill

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday that Israel has intercepted a drone sent by Iran.

The drone was dispatched from either Iraq or Syria and intercepted at Israel's border with Jordan, Netanyahu said at a meeting with German Foreign Minister Heiko Mass in Tel Aviv, according to Bloomberg.

Netanyahu, however, did not provide evidence to bolster his claim, other than holding what he said was part of the unmanned aircraft, the outlet noted.

The prime minister accused Iran of backing and financing the Islamic Jihad in Gaza, in addition to providing weapons to the Palestinian militant group Hamas and the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, Bloomberg reported.

I remember in the build up to the Iraq invasion Iraq was accused of have drone technology because one of Saddam Hussein's sons had a radio controlled model airplane.

4. Israel has committed repeated acts of war against Iran.

Not terribly impressed by 'Iranian drone' from 'Syria, or maybe Iraq'.

6. No one can believe a word Bibi says. He's another Trump, lying constantly.

Bibi wants to scuttle the nuclear agreement with Iran and will say anything to get his way. The ultra religious and the right wing in Israel are ruining that country, just as they are here in the US. Extremism of any form doesn’t win friends.

13. Bibi never produces evidence.

He goes on TV, they take it as fact.

Blinken said he had not seen anything about Hamas in the press building they blew up. Yet the press announced it as fact.

15. Does it really matter

He could show the world a wreck drone and many here would simply say “false flag”. At DU this is an emotional not fact driven argument for many Israel haters.

22. Wanting better evidence doesn't make one a hater

I recognize Israel's right to exist but I'm also extremely skeptical of Netanyahu especially considering his current political situation.

17. Do they have the right to wage aggressive proxy wars in multiple countries?

Don’t recall Saudi Arab attacking Iran recently. And the people of Syria certainly didn’t attack Iran.

Why all the fuss over Gaza? Isn’t this “how it goes”?

23. But we are and have been for decades.

Condemning Iran for this behavior seems hypocritical.

Our proxy Saudi Arabia is committing genocide in Yemen in order to keep the shiite majority from governing the country. Our proxy Israel routinely attacks Iran, committing assassinations and sabotage operations, keeping us from getting our hands dirty. We have drones all over everyone's airspace, and we seem to think that is somehow acceptable.

Iran should stop, but that can't be unilateral.
