Debka is reporting the crash of an unidentified drone at the presumed uranium enrichment site. This follows Iran's warning of shooting down any unidentified aircraft in it's airspace so it's not clear if it was indeed a "crash".

Debka is reporting this as an exclusive and after checking other news sources I did not find the story elsewhere.
Their top page changes often and since this is a short statement I will quote it in it's entirety in case it changes.
DEBKAfile Exclusive: Unidentified drone crashes at Arak nuclear site in central Iran, according to sources close to Iranian Revolutionary Guards ex-commander Rezai.

Evidence in wreckage of intelligence-gathering at presumed uranium enrichment site. Last week, Iranian air force commander said mystery aircraft reported by witnesses over sensitive sites would be shot down.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.

Debka is reputed to have contacts with the Israeli intelligence community and I have found them to have credible details about events in the Middle East as well as having broken several stories befor other media picked up on them. For example, they correctly outlined the series of events surrounding Arafat's death some months ago.

In this case they claim sources close to the ex-Iranian Revolutionary Guard commander.

So it seems we have a reconnaissance mission that has failed to go undetected.

The warning issued last week by Iran about shooting down aircraft violating their airspace (after several incidents of US warplanes breaching their airspace) reveals that their air defenses are likely being probed. Now we have confirmation of active reconnaissance. The drone is unidentified so we can only guess as to whether or not it belongs to the US or to Israel.

How long before the inevitable strike on an Iranian nuclear facility?

It would not be the first time that events take place in Iran simultaneously with a US inauguration ceremony…
