Iran State TV Airs Footage Of "Downed Israeli Drone"

Tyler Durden's picture

As Iran continues to negotiate with world powers over its controversial (but purely for peaceful purposes, of course) nuclear program - with hard-liners demanding more concessions from the West - The Telegraph reports that a brief video, which aired on the Arabic-language Al-Alam TV, shows what the channel says are parts of an Israeli drone, scattered in an unidentified desert area. Text accompanying the footage says the drone was downed on Saturday and identifies it as a Hermes 450, a known Israeli model. The Iranian TV station also says the model is dubbed "Spy Goddess." However, as The Telegraph adds, there were no visible Israeli markings in the footage and Israel's military has declined comment on the matter... and Iran will sue Israel legally over its alleged violation of Iran's air space.

But then...

Iran will sue Israel legally over its alleged violation of Iran's air space, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said here on Monday following reports that Iran had downed an Israeli stealth drone in its airspace.


"We will take a proper defensive measure over the clear violation of our country's integrity, and we preserve the right to follow up the issue in the legal and international bodies," Afkham was quoted as saying by official IRNA news agency.


Iran will give a crushing response to any enemy aggression against its soil, Iranian military officials also said on Monday.

Israel (via USA) isnt just spying on Iran...they are spying on everyone else via JOOGLE and FACEFUCK. Thats why China and Russia need their own OS for their computing.

Couldn't they find an uglier woman to stick her face out of a burlap sack?

But I bet she gives a mean BJ!

If that's the best looking woman they could find to put on TV, no wonder they keep them covered from head to toe.

Quick, somebody take their shoes off and throw them at her.

So what's the story here, are we supposed to be surprised that Israel is spying on Iran?  Or are we supposed to be surprised that Iran actually shot something down?  They do know a DRONE means there is no one inside and they can just send another one, right?

Hmmmm. Iran can show proof of its conquests, but Kiev can't show anything. Kiev can lie like there's no tomorrow and hide evidence that incriminates them, however, like the air traffic control recording regarding a certain Malaysian Airlines plane. Does this mean I have more respect for Iran than Ukraine and the EU (not to mention the good ol' USSA)?

That's not iranian TV, that's Arab TV reporting on what Iranian TV showed. 

Anyways, HR could have indeed looked at her before hiring.

Where did the drone take off from?  Israel?  A sub off of Iran's coast?  UAE?  Qatar?

Ohh... and...  Hermes is no sort of "stealth" at all.

So you prefer to be lied to by the bimbos at Fox or CNN, rather than hear the truth from someone less attractive?  In that case, they've already won.

They never take my recommendation to put about 100 lbs of C4 in those babies to remotely fire in the case of downing.  Since you know they read ZH, I'll go ahead and recommend that they have a series of detonations as the drone is on the way down...that way, they scatter the debris field over a large area.   Oh, and thermite all computing/controller devices.

An extra 100lbs of cargo?  Who pays the fuel bill for that?

Nobody Important's picture

The US probably. It pays for just about everything else Israel's military uses.

Seriously as in BFD
If you've drone one you've droned them all or some such nonsense.
I mean, come on.... by now Iran and China have reverse engineered that US drone forced down long ago, for Pete's sakes

But, no doubt will be blown way up for political advantage.

To be clear, it wasn't shaped like a star of david and had no "if lost return to tel aviv" so there is no evidence it is israeli. Gotcha. I expect it was Danish, or Glaswegian..

Headbanger's picture

Yeah it's amazing what you can buy on eBay.

Pure Evil's picture

It was probably the missing Malaysian Flight 320.

speaking of which. Go down this rabbit hole.


p.s. apparently the folks with certain dietary requirements who get paid to troll message boards have an itchy downvote mouse finger.

Wouldn't a scottish drone be super terrifying? I mean, it'd be swearing in a semi-intelligible voice, spilling pee, Irn Bru and Buckfast on its victims. Not to mention disrupting local soccer games. The horror...

Take shelter when you hear bagpipes screaming overhead.

Good project to Reverse Engineer it, or send it back with a few kg of C4.

Lucky they shot it down; it was heading at full throttle for an apartment building in Teheran where a Hamas Envoy had secreted one of his mistresses.

Enlisting deeper dependence on the state, at the expense of personal responsibility, leads to rapid societal decline.

S&P 2500 if Israel attacks Iran's nuclear sites with conventional weapons.  S&P 3k if they go nuclear.

If it still had foreskin it would be the size of the downed Malaysian Airliner.  This one looks like a little prick, its Israeli all right, God is laughing at them everyday, how gullible can someone be to mutilate their wee wee.
