Israeli occupation military said on Friday that a drone has crossed the Israel occupation airspace, noting that the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) has evaded iron dome interceptors.
Israeli forces “fired Iron Dome interceptor missiles at a small unmanned aircraft that entered the country from Lebanon Friday, as air raid sirens rang out across wide swaths of Israel’s north,” Zionist media quoted the occupation military as saying.
A state of confusion prevailed in the Zionist entity as the Israeli media reported the infiltration of the drone from Lebanon.
Shortly after the incident, the occupation military said that “contact” with the drone had been lost.
Hebrew media reports indicated that the attempts to down it were unsuccessful and that the aircraft had escaped back across the border.
The drone infiltration from Lebanon triggered sirens in settlements throughout the Galilee and the lower Golan Heights, the occupation military said.
Earlier on Thursday, Zionist media also reported another drone infiltration from Lebanon, claiming that Israeli air defense systems managed to down it “using electronic warfare.”
On Wednesday, Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah said the Lebanese Resistance movement has been capable of producing UAVs fro a long time, noting that they were available for sale.
“Whoever wants to buy a drone has to submit a request,” Sayyed Nasrallah said joking as he was addressing a ceremony held in memorial of Hezbollah martyred leaders- Sheikh Ragheb Harb, Sayyed Abbas Al-Mousawi and Hajj Imad Mughniyeh.
