Israeli drone brought down near nuclear facility, says Iran
August 25 , 2014
Iran’s Revolutionary Guards have claimed that a stealth drone belonging to Israel was shot down above a uranium enrichment site by a ground-to-air missile, according to media reports.
In a statement, the Revolutionary Guards said Israel’s “mischievous act once again reveals the adventurist nature of the Zionist regime.”
The aircraft flying above the Natanz site was a radar-evasive type, Iranian officials were quoted as saying.
The Natanz site houses over 16,000 centrifuges. Israel accuses Iran of trying to assemble a nuclear bomb. Iran says it needs nuclear power only for peaceful purposes.
