    Israeli Media Reports Israeli Drone Shot OVER LEBANON By "Hezbollah Terror Group"

    Hezbollah shoots at Israeli drone over southern Lebanon
    November 1st, 2019

    The Hezbollah terror group fired an anti-aircraft missile at an Israeli drone flying over southern Lebanon on Thursday, officials in both countries said.

    [And where is the Lebanese military, when it's airspace is being violated by Israel?]

    The Israel Defense Forces denied the Iran-backed terror group’s claim that the aircraft had been shot down over the Lebanese village of Nabatieh. “A short while ago, anti-aircraft fire was detected from Lebanese territory at an IDF unmanned aerial vehicle. The aircraft was not damaged,” the army said in a statement. An explosion was also heard in the area, residents told local media. Earlier this month, a small IDF drone was shot down over southern Lebanon.

    The Israel Defense Foces said the aircraft was conducting “routine operations to secure the border” when it crashed inside Lebanese territory. A video from Lebanon shared on social media showed that drone hovering in the air followed by cracks of gunfire. Photographs apparently taken shortly thereafter show a Lebanese man holding the drone, a collapsible model known as a Mavic, which is used by Israeli troops. The drone appears to be missing one of its rotors.

    Hezbollah vowed to start shooting down Israeli spy drones after a drone attack on the terror group’s Beirut stronghold in late August, which it blamed on Israel. In response to Israel’s attack, on September 1, Iran-backed Shiite group fired three anti-tank missiles into Israel, nearly hitting a military vehicle and successfully striking an army base near the border. Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah later said his organization would respond to any further Israeli attacks with strikes “deep inside Israel” and not just along the border.

    Hezbollah is not a 'Terrorist Group'. It's a militia, a defensive group.
