IDF drone fell in Lebanese territory during routine operational activity
BREAKING: The IDF said one of its drones fell in Lebanese territory during routine operational activity, but there are no fears about leaking of intelligence.
According to Lebanese reports, there is currently a continued IAF drone and jet activity over Lebanon, including over Beirut.
Earlier today, the IDF deployed artillery, armored reinforcements and additional Iron Dome batteries in preparation for an imminent Hezbollah attack on the Israel-Lebanon border, likely to occur in the coming days.
According to reports, the IDF is preparing for a preemptive strike to thwart Hezbollah terror cells that are planning the attack.
Last week, the IDF moved to a higher state of readiness to defend Israel’s northern border in preparation for Hezbollah’s response to the elimination of one of its terrorists in an alleged Israeli airstrike in Syria.
PM Netanyahu addressed the tensions in northern Israel saying that the IDF is prepared to respond to any threat.
“We will not allow them to undermine our security and we will not allow them to threaten our citizens; we will not tolerate harm to our forces. Together with the Defense Minister and Chief of Staff, I am conducting ongoing situation assessments. The IDF is prepared to respond to any threat,” PM Netanyahu said.
