Nothing like a killer drone to ruin the serenity of a Saturday night. Apparently Benjamin Netanyahu got some inkling that Iran was about to launch an attack, because he preempted a drone attack by launching an airstrike in Syria. At least that is the news available at this moment. CNN:
The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) claimed responsibility for the airstrikes, saying it was necessary to thwart multiple attacks by what it called killer, or kamikaze, drones, of a kind not previously used by Iranian forces against Israel._Unlike more standard attack drones, which fire missiles towards their targets, the killer drone acts as its own missile by flying into the target itself._When asked by CNN how immediate the IDF assessed the threat to be, IDF foreign press spokesman Jonathan Conricus described it as “imminent, as in real-time.”_Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in acknowledging Israel’s responsibility for the attacks, said on Twitter, “I repeat: Iran has no immunity anywhere. Our forces operate in every direction against Iranian aggression.”_
“He who rises to kill you, kill him first,” Netanyahu said in his tweet, quoting Hebrew scripture.
