Hizbollah 'shoots down Israeli drone' inside Lebanon amid rising tensions

Hizbollah 'shoots down Israeli drone' inside Lebanon amid rising tensions”

Anna Ahronheim, the military and defense correspondent at the Jerusalem Post, said the Israeli occupation military "confirms a small drone fell in south Lebanon during a routine operation yesterday". "There is no risk of a breach of information", an army spokesman told AFP, without giving further details.

Israeli occupation military confirmed a drone was downed in southern Lebanon, shortly after Hezbollah claimed responsibility for the event.

The brief exchange of cross-border fire between Hezbollah and Israel marked the fiercest shelling exchange since the long-time enemies fought a deadly month-long war in 2006.

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said Tuesday that the Israel Defense Forces showed weakness in the incident earlier this month in which it staged an evacuation of "wounded soldiers" from an APC that his group targeted with anti-tank missiles, and that Hezbollah had learned lessons from the incident.

The Shia group was able to overwhelm Israel's ground invasion of southern Lebanon and attack military and civilian targets, undermining internal Israeli support for the war and spurring regional support for Hezbollah's military successes against a state army.

Nasrallah also warned that Israel would cease to exist if there were to be any war on Iran. The military said the drone went down Sunday, not Monday, and the reason for the discrepancy was not clear.

Turning to the region, Nasrallah said: "We reject any war plans against the Iranian republic, because such a war will ignite the region and destroy countries and peoples".

"I heard from the secretary-general of Lebanese Hezbollah that Hezbollah will give an appropriate and regrettable response to the slightest Israeli aggression on Lebanon". Hariri received Schenker who will mediate between Lebanon and Israel over a maritime border dispute.

According to Fox News, Iran is expected to move thousands of troops there once the facility is completed, as well as advanced weaponry such as precision-guided missiles.

Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said the fall of the two Israeli drones marked a risky development.

"All failed to hit Israeli territory".

Hezbollah said its air defense forces shot down the aircraft early Monday as it crossed the border between Lebanon and the occupied Palestinian lands.

Al Arabiya said the base, in the al-Boukamal area, also housed forces from the Lebanese Hezbollah terror group.
