Lebanese army opens fire on 2 Israeli drones hovering near the border
BREAKING: The Lebanese army fired at two drones hovering near the Israeli-Lebanese border, according to the Hezbollah-affiliated TV channel Al-Manar.
The IDF said it was unaware of any incident involving drones near the Lebanese border and later confirmed that shots were fired at Israeli drones.
Earlier on Wednesday, the IDF called up a small number of reserve soldiers for northern duty.
Lebanese airspace six kilometers from the Israel-Lebanon border was closed today to civilian flights after alleged Israeli drones, which actually were manufactured in Iran, ‘crashed’ in the Beirut stronghold of the Iran-backed Hezbollah terror group on Saturday night.
Yesterday, Lebanese officials stressed its right to defend the country “by any means against any aggression” and president Aoun denounced the attack as a “declaration of war”.
Hezbollah terror group leader Hassan Nasrallah threatened residents of northern Israel “not to rest” following the drones incident.
During Nasrallah’s speech, a field commander in the Iranian-backed Hezbollah terror group was eliminated in a strike by an unidentified drone along a highway near the Syria-Iraq border.
