This major crash is yet to be covered in the New York Times

"The Heron TP drone is also known locally as the Eitan. It has a wingspan of 86 feet, making it the size of a Boeing 737 passenger jet. It is the largest unmanned aircraft in Israel's military arsenal. No injuries were reported in the accident. Israel's military is understood to be launching an investigation into the crash.  The drone figures to be featured prominently in any potential Israeli operation against Iran and its expanding nuclear program."  If this was a crash of an Iranian missiles, it would be featured on the front page of all US newspapers.  Saudi media also ignored the "incident".
