Report: Iran Drone Crashes West of Tikrit

Ababil-3A Kurdish newspaper is reporting that an Iranian drone crashed west of Tirkit, Iraq, where Iranian Quds Forces are working with Iraq soldiers to retake Tikrit from ISIS militants.

Iran has flown drones over Iraq since last year when militants with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria started over taking Iraqi forces in Northern Iraq and gaining large swaths of land. The New York Times has reported that Iran has flown the Ababil-3 drone out of the Al Rasheed air base in Iraq.

This is not the first Iranian drone to crash in Iraq. ISIS militants have posted photos of destroyed Iranian drones on Twitter before the social media site blocked ISIS propaganda.

The Kurdish Globe reported that the Iranian drone crashed in Khurmatoo, Iraq, which sits south of Kirkuk and west of Tikrit.
