The downing of drones in different parts of West Asia over the past few days indicates that the battles between the defenders and the aggressors have entered a new and crucial phase.
If the US and its principal agent in the region, the illegal Zionist entity, are throwing every sophisticated unmanned flying object in their armoury into the airspaces of Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen in order to test the defences of the said countries, the ever-vigilant Resistance Forces have demonstrated their capabilities by blasting in midair the surveillance-and-attack aircraft of the aggressors.
The popular Ansarallah Movement of Yemen has rapidly increased its drone/ missile technology, and taking a cue from the Islamic Republic of Iran which last June shattered the myth of invincibility of Americans drone power, has so far shot down two US UAVs, to the chagrin of Washington.
Inspired by such heroics, Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (PMU or Hashd ash-Sha’bi), which for the past few months had been the unprovoked target of the Zionist-American drone attacks, on Sunday turned the tables on the attackers by downing their drones.
While Syria continues to blunt the frequent Israeli violation of its airspace, the Zionist suffered the loss of two drones in the skies of Beirut when these cowardly criminals dared to provoke the Lebanese people.
Lebanon’s legendry anti-terrorist movement, the Hezbollah, which in 2006 shattered the myth of Zionist military invincibility, shot down the two drones in the southern Dhahiyeh district of the Lebanese capital, just hours after Israeli forces tried to hit targets in Damascus in neighbouring Syria and failed.
The Zionist violation of Lebanon’s airspace was a bid to distract attention from the supply of Israeli weapons to the terrorists cornered in the Idlib Province of Syria.
Hezbollah promptly provided evidences of the Israeli transfer of weapons to the terrorists in Syria, with the blessings of the US.
Meanwhile, the Hashd ash-Sha’bi shot down a spy drone in Iraq’s Nineveh Province on Sunday – to the surprise of the Americans and the Zionists.
Iraq’s PMU had shot down another spy drone last Thursday as it was flying in the vicinity of the 12th Brigade of Hashd ash-Sha’bi over the outskirts of the capital, Baghdad.
These are all indications of the heating of the situation in West Asia by the US, in complicity with the Israelis, at a time when their Arab stooges, especially Saudi Arabia, have utterly failed in confronting the effectiveness of the drone power of the Yemenis.
To the surprise of these diabolical duo, the defenders have shown their prowess and are determined to defeat in drone battle any sophisticated UAV that violates the airspace of regional countries.
