[quote:Anonymous Coward 25538446:MV8yMDE2NjE0XzMzODg2MzM0XzRGNjM1Rjgz] [quote:DoorBert:MV8yMDE2NjE0XzMzODg2MzA3X0ZENDc1REZB] [b]Hezbollah drone scanned Israel missile sites, main airfields: Report[/b] The drone Hezbollah recently sent into the Israeli airspace has photographed secret military bases inside the occupied territories, a report says. According to the UK newspaper Sunday Times, “The drone, which was airborne for three hours before being intercepted by an F-16 jet, is believed to have transmitted pictures of preparations for Israel’s biggest joint military exercise with the US army… as well as ballistic missile sites, main airfields and, possibly, its nuclear reactor in Dimona.” The report also stated that the interception of the unmanned aerial vehicle was “botched” when the first missile fired by the Israeli warplane missed. http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2012/10/14/266577/drone-scanned-israel-missile-sites/ [/quote] I don't believe a word that is written on PressTV ! That drone did not have the capability to transmit live images back to Hezbollah...that would require a satellite connection and needless to say they don't have such a thing ! The drone was radio controlled from Lebanon or even programmed to fly on a certain course then return home so any pictures of Israeli missile sites it might have taken went up in smoke along with it !
