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.
An RT Arabic crew managed to get into an Israeli military base at the border with Lebanon. The outpost was hastily abandoned after a recent showdown with Hezbollah, and the IDF even left behind vehicles and ammunition.
Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah has vowed to usher in a “new phase” of conflict with Israel, insisting Tel Aviv will no longer violate Lebanese airspace with their drones and promising to respond in force.
The Lebanese Army said it opened fire on Israeli drones that “breached” its airspace near the southern border. It follows the crash of two Israeli drones in Beirut, which the nation’s PM called an “open attack on sovereignty.”
