Iranian forces test S-300PMU-2 system during drills (Source: Mehr News Agency).

BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:45 P.M.) – An unidentified object was spotted over Iran last night, prompting the Islamic Republic to activate its air defenses.

According to the Russian publication Avia.Pro, “a few hours ago, Iran’s air defense systems were activated due to the appearance of an unknown aircraft in the country’s airspace. It is known that at least two anti-aircraft guided missiles were fired for the target, however, it was not possible to hit the aircraft.”

Not long after reports surfaced of the suspected aircraft, a video was released on several social media platforms, which showed the object in Iranian airspace.

“In the presented video frames, you can see the target itself, for which fire was opened; however, at the moment it remains unknown what exactly the Iranian air defense systems tried to bring down – they failed to identify the target visually or by air defense systems,” Avia.Pro added.

The Iranian Ministry of Defense has yet to comment on the incident.

Last July, a U-2S from 99th recon-squadron did set its civilian transponder for 1.55 second just about 200km north-east from Bandar-Abbas, in other terms, in the middle of Iranian territory. You can verify this by yourself on the FlightRadar website which records ALL civilian transponders activities. Just as I said last year, they did a terrible mistake at activating air-defenses against the US’ Global-Hawk which for sure had its ELINT package loaded onboard… Now US know everything they need to defeat Iranian air-defenses by just pushing a button… BTW, when you don’t identify a flying object, you send jet-fighters to… Read more »
