Hezbollah Claims It Flew Drone Into Israel During Military Exercise

Israel last month downed a Hezbollah-operated drone after it entered the country’s air space.

An armed drone belonging to Hezbollah made an incursion into Israeli territory and filmed two of the country’s military bases, the Lebanon-based terrorist organization has claimed.

The unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) crossed the Lebanon-Israel border during the second day of Israel’s military exercise in late October, several Middle-East based media outlets reported, citing the Al-Nahar television channel.

The drone reportedly filmed Biranit camp near the border and a military outpost in the Har Dov area.

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) reportedly held a large-scale multi-front exercise dubbed “Lethal Arrow” at the end of October, simulating a war with Hezbollah. 

The goal of the exercise was reportedly that of preventing drones from crossing into Israeli territory from Lebanon.

There has been no official reaction from Israel to the reports.

Last month, Israel downed a Hezbollah-operated drone after it entered the country’s air space, the IDF said.
