The function to send and send images of US MQ-9 unmanned aircraft was paralyzed during the attack.
FARS on January 12 quoted Brigadier General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, the commander of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), that the IRGC interfered with US MQ-9 aircraft during a missile strike on US military target in Iraq on January 8.
According to General Hajizadeh, the communication and sending function of the US MQ-9 unmanned aircraft was paralyzed during the IRGC attack on the Ain al-Asad military base.

“We carried out an important electronic warfare with special equipment before launching a missile attack on the US base. We have brought all unmanned aircraft operating near the base. Ain al-Asad military is out of US military control.
This left the American forces at the Ain al-Assad base in a state of confusion, not knowing what was going on outside. All images around the US base were cut off, “Hajizadeh said at a news conference.
According to IRGC Commander, the most important thing for Americans is to know the extent of damage immediately after the Iranian attack, thereby providing appropriate handling measures. However, the US did not get what it wanted, and then went into a passive position.
General Hajizadeh said that Iranian missile attacks on two US bases in Iraq in retaliation for the assassination of General Soleimani, commander of Quds. And that is just the beginning of the next series of reprisals.
“We can make the number of US casualties more than a few dozen dead. Because under the plan, Iran could kill 500 US soldiers in the first attack and about 5,000 US soldiers killed in the attack. second attack.
We have already prepared to launch hundreds of rockets into the first attack and thousands of missiles for the clashes expected three days later, “the commander of the IRGC said.
The FARS estimates that the IRGC attack was the first direct attack on the US base since the end of World War II.
The less responsive reaction of the US army after the Iranian attack made its allies nervous. On January 12, British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace stressed that the British army must be ready for the war without the US.
President Donald Trump as well as White House, Pentagon and State Department officials repeatedly asserted Major General Qassem Soleimani, Commander of the Quds task force of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard (IRGC). threaten US interests.
However, to date, they have not been able to provide any credible evidence regarding Soleimani’s atrocities against the US or US embassies.
Sen. Mike Lee of Utah expressed his indignation when President Trump warned of potential attacks but did not provide any details of those plots or evidence for his statement. Others see this as the latest example of a White House leader lying.
