Ira­nian drone crashes in Khur­ma­too

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

A se­cu­rity of­fi­cial in Khur­ma­too says a pi­lot­less spy plane be­long­ing to the Is­lamic Repub­lic of Iran crashed within the bor­ders of Khur­ma­too town, some 75 kilo­me­ters south of Kirkuk.

Faruq Ahmed, Direc­tor of Khur­ma­too Se­cu­rity, told a lo­cal Kur­dish news web­site that the rea­son of the crash seems to be a tech­ni­cal fail­ure of the plane.

“The Ira­nian forces were look­ing for one of their pi­lot­less planes in Khur­ma­too, which was later found near Hlewa vil­lage, near to the Kur­dish Pesh­marga’s 15th brigade base,” Ahmed told the web­site. “The plane was sent to col­lect data and the in­ci­dent seems to have re­sulted from a tech­ni­cal fail­ure of the plane since the area is far from the ISIS con­trolled ter­ri­to­ries.”
