New Iranian weaponized drone deployed in Syria and likely handed to Hizballah

Iranian Defense Minister Brig. Gen. Amir Hatami said in a speech celebrating the new mass-produced weaponry Monday that the new drones, dubbed the Mohajer 6 (Migrant) are “equipped with smart Qa’em precision-striking bombs and different electro-optical explorers and different warheads, [and] can trace, intercept and destroy the target.” Before the ceremony, the new drones were delivered last week to the Revolutionary Guards for their war efforts across the Middle East, especially in Syria, where Iranian-backed forces have attacked US troops. DEBKAfile adds: The new weapons, which have a range of more than 900km, have reached Syria and most likely Hizballah as well. Their main purpose is to arm Iranian and Hizballah forces in Syria with their own air force capability and so reduce their total dependence on the Russians for air support. Iran recently gave the pro-Iranian Shiite militias fighting ISIS in Iraq a fleet of Shahed 285 helicopters, to boost the autonomy in battle of the forces deployed by the Revolutionary Guards.

    Maybe these light fighter jets are in fact light helicopters?

    I wonder if their design is from reverse engineering our drone which Obama allowed to fall into their hands?
