Israel’s army on Monday claimed it has interpreted a small drone likely belonging to the Iranian-backed group Hezbollah after it crossed into the country from Lebanon.
Israeli army Arabic-language Spokesman, Avichay Adraee said the drone seems to be linked to “terrorist Hebollah”, and the drone had been tracked and monitored by the aerial surveillance unites throughout its flight.
“We will continue to work to prevent any violation of Israel’s sovereignty,” Adraee said in a tweet.
Two weeks ago, Israeli shot down three unarmed Hezbollah UAVs headed for the Karish offshore gas field.
On June 29, Israel said it had brought down another Hezbollah drone.
Hezbollah has occasionally sent drones into Israeli airspace and call them “reconnaissance mission”
Hezbollah did not immediately comment on Monday’s incident.
