[Ed. – It’s not the first time. Iran has launched drone expeditions against Israeli air space before. Doing it during an all-out rocket assault by Hamas clarifies — for those who needed it — that Iran isn’t just a bystander in the attack on Israel.]
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday that Israel has intercepted a drone sent by Iran.
The drone was dispatched from either Iraq or Syria and intercepted at Israel’s border with Jordan, Netanyahu said at a meeting with German Foreign Minister Heiko Mass in Tel Aviv, according to Bloomberg. …
The prime minister accused Iran of backing and financing the Islamic Jihad in Gaza, in addition to providing weapons to the Palestinian militant group Hamas and the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, Bloomberg reported.
