“Seven to eight drones that flew constantly over Syria and Iraq were brought under our control and their intel was monitored by us first hand,” claimed Brig. Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, commander of the Iranian Guards Air Force on Friday, Feb. 22. To support the claim, the Iranian FARS agency released a three-minute video called ““one of the many proofs in support of General Hajizadeh’s remarks” with footage from several different incidents that show a US MQ-9 Reaper UAV, known also as Predator B, crash-landing after its operator apparently lost control. The Reaper is one of the larges US Air Force armed drones’ it is capable of high altitudes and speed and operated by pilot teams from a ground station in the United States or a regional US command center. The Predator Bs are in service with US forces in war arenas like Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq and Yemen. The Iranian clip shows the US drone destroyed on the ground by an airstrike to destroy its intelligence instruments. Some aviation sources date this purported incident to 2016 and report that there were no recurrences since then.
