NCRI: An Iranian made drone has been filmed while flying in Syria on April 10. The drone "Shahed 129" model is a remotely piloted vehicle that is claimed to have an endurance of 24 hours and an operative range of to 1,700 - 2,000 kilometers.
"Shahed 129" or in English "Eye-Witness" was first seen in a IRGC war game in July 2012. Later the Iranian regime claimed in September 2013 that has built a version of the drone that can carry missiles.
An Iranian lawmaker, member of parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission said last November that there are "hundreds of battalions" of the Iranian regime's troops in Syria fighting for Bashar al-Assad.
The Syrian opposition has repeatedly demanded that the Iranian regime be declared an occupying force in Syria.
Many members of IRGC have been captured or killed fighting for Bashar Assad in Syria. A State-run website in Iran recently published photos and names of a number of members of Revolutionary Guards and Basij dispatched by the regime to Syria and killed fighting for the Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.
The video is uploaded in Youtube by Syrian opposition activists.
