According to the information published on Twitter, the Iranian military using remote access learned how to crack the Patriot air defense and missile defense systems. To do this, reconnaissance drones were used, which broadcast radiation from electronic warfare systems, suppressing US radar stations.

As evidence, Tehran published photographs showing how the Iranian UAV freely flies the largest US military bases in neighboring Iraq and on the west coast of the Persian Gulf.
