Iran continues to threaten the peace of the Jewish state. Israel announced today that Iran carried out a direct attack on Israel by sending a drone armed with explosives to the Jewish state.

Israel revealed on Friday that an Iranian drone that entered Israeli airspace in February after launching from an airbase in Syria was carrying explosives. The base was allegedly attacked by Israel on Monday, and reportedly saw the targeting of Iran’s entire attack drone weapons system — prompting soaring tensions between Israel and Iran.

The Iranian drone shot down in February was carrying enough explosives to cause damage, military sources said. Its precise intended target in Israel was not known, they said.
