Hezbollah downs ‘another Israeli drone’ after vowing no tolerance to airspace violations
Lebanon’s Hezbollah said it downed an Israeli drone near the southern border. Earlier, the group’s leader, Hassan Nasrallah, vowed that Israel will no longer be allowed to violate Lebanon’s airspace with impunity.
The type of UAV, or whether it was a commercial or a military grade surveillance drone, is unknown. Hezbollah is yet to release any footage.Also on rt.com ‘No more tolerance of Israel over Lebanese airspace’: Hezbollah head signals ‘new phase’ of conflict
