IDF Shoots Down Hezbollah Drone

YERUSHALAYIM -

The IDF said it shot down a drone sent by Hezbollah across the Lebanese border into Israeli airspace on Thursday morning.

The small drone was retrieved, the military added.

The incident came shortly after IDF Spokesperson Hidai Zilberman told reporters that the military is on “high alert on a number of fronts,” without elaborating.

“The IDF works constantly on the borders of the State of Israel using multi-tiered defense systems to detect and intercept aerial infiltrations,” the military said.

“The IDF severely condemns the violation of its territorial integrity and holds the state of Lebanon responsible for this [attack],” the statement read.
