Iran claims frequent former drone flights into Israel

A senior Iranian military official claimed Tuesday that Iranian-made surveillance drones made dozens of apparently undetected flights into Israeli airspace from Lebanon in recent years to probe air defenses and collect reconnaissance data. An Israeli official rejected the account. The Iranian official declined to give further details, including whether they were similar to the unmanned aircraft launched last week by Lebanon's Hezbollah and downed by Israeli warplanes. The oficial’s claim could not be independently verified as he spoke on condition of anonymity.
