MADE IN IRAN: U.S. Intel Believes Drone That Killed Soldiers in Jordan Iranian-Made; Report

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.01.24

According to an exclusive Reuters report, American intelligence agencies believe that the drone that killed three U.S. service members and injured more than 40 in Jordan over the weekend was made in Iran.

From Reuters:

The officials, who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity, did not provide the model of the drone and said analysis was still ongoing.

While the initial indications were that the drone was likely Iranian, a formal assessment was made only recently after recovering fragments of the drone.

U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, asked about the matter at a news briefing following the Reuters report, stopped short of confirming the drone’s origin.

“We’re still doing the forensics,” Austin said. “But most of the drones that are in the region have a connection with Iran. So …”

Austin said he didn’t know whether Iran knew about the attack ahead of time, but added that, in his view, it didn’t matter.
