An Israeli unmanned aerial vehicle has just crashed in the vicinity of Baghdad Airport.
According to the FARS News Agency, an Israeli Hermes drone crashed near Baghdad airport on Aug. 27.
It is still not clear whether the UAV was shot down or crashed (for unknown reasons) but, if confirmed, the loss would be the second in less than three days, after another drone, yet to be identified, was allegedly shot down on its way to Natanz nuclear enrichment facility, in the Central parts of Iran.
Even if the FNA has published the image on a Hermes 900 UAV (a High Altitude Long Endurance UAV – with capabilities superior to those of the Hermes 450 – that has had its baptmism of fire during Operation Protective Edge in Gaza) the model involved in the incident is still unknown.

The question is what in the world was the Israeli drone doing in Iraq? And who mandated the Israeli drones flight in Iran? All these events in sensitive times in the backdrop of the Gaza War, Iranian Nuclear negotiations and Iraqi IS crises. Israel should stop acting as the naughty boy of the region because if retaliation takes places then Bibi will be quick to remind the world that Israel is very sensitive about its security because the total flight time to enter and leave Israel is 2 to 3.
Your apparently on the wrong side of the conflict.
