[Video] Assad Regime’s Mohajer 2 UAV reappears over Damascus

A couple of days ago, two Yasir drones were shot down (or crashed) in Syria.

The made-in-Iran UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) based on the American ScanEagle is just the latest addition to the Syrian regime’s fleet of drones that have been used to spy on rebels across the country.

One of the first types spotted after the beginning of the uprising is the Mohajer 2, another Iranian drone that then “disappeared” from the skies over Syria, to be replaced by “Pahpad”, Mohajer-3, several DIY models and eventually Yasir.

However, on Dec. 9, a drone that seems to be a Mohajer 2 appeared over Damascus.

A new batch just delivered or one of the old examples preserved until now?
