A drone, which according to the Israeli military belongs to the Lebanese-based Hezbollah terrorist group, crossed Israeli airspace and then returned across the border, writes the Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronoth.
The IDF spokesman’s unit stated that the drone was observing Israeli troop movements.
The incident took place around noon on Wednesday, June 12, when an unmanned vehicle crossed the western part of the Israel-Lebanon border, and the IDF spokesman’s unit reported that the incident was being investigated using Israeli surveillance information.
Israeli aircraft were sent to the area to follow the drone flight, although it was not shot down.
In a ceremony on Tuesday marking the war in Lebanon in 2006, the military commander of the Northern Command, Lt. Gen. Amir Baram, that
Hassan Nasrallah, who is the leader of the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, seemed to be under incredible pressure at his recent public participation, adding that Lebanon could pay dearly in the next war.
Baram told the families of fallen IDF soldiers killed during the Second Lebanon War that Nasrallah’s loyalty lies with Iran – not with Lebanon.
He added that Israel would never allow Hezbollah to build infrastructure for terrorist attacks on Israelis from southern Lebanon, including missile launching capabilities that violate UN resolutions or threaten Israel with fighters trained in offensive operations.
