Israeli officer raises Iranian “suicide drone” specter, denies overflying Hizballah UAV shot film

A senior officer in Israel's northern command on Monday dismissed an Iranian claim they were in possession of data transmitted by an unmanned Hizbollah drone that overflew Israel earlier this month. "I don't think there was a camera," he said, speaking on condition of anonymity, although he admitted the incident was "still being investigated." The Israeli officer said that to the best of his knowledge "there were no weapons on the drone." Its mission was to show that it “could stay over Israel for a very long time, which could develop into filming abilities.
He also raised the possibility of future "suicide drones" which could carry explosives and be crashed onto Israeli targets.
