European intelligence source claims Iran stuns West by ‘aiming a laser burst quite accurately’ at US satellite in never before reported incident.
US official: “If Russians provided Iran with sophisticated jamming equipment it means a lot else is at risk too.”
Is Iran in possession of satellite jamming technology? A European intelligence source claimed Iran stunned Western intelligence agencies when it managed to “blind a CIA spy satellite by aiming a laser burst quite accurately,” in a never before reported incident.
According to an article in The Christian Science Monitor, this unreported incident might suggest that the Iranians have successively gained access to jamming technology, allowing them to track unmanned aerial vehicle navigation capabilities.
Former US Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton told Fox News on Sunday that such an option is possible.
“Some reports have said Russia sold (Iran) a very sophisticated jamming system a short time ago. Now, our military says that is not true, it came down because of a malfunction. I certainly hope that’s right because if the Russians have provided Iran with sophisticated jamming equipment it means a lot else is at risk too,” said Bolton.
