Lebanon’s Hezbollah said on Monday it brought down an Israeli drone that had entered Lebanese airspace, while the IDF said one of its drones had fallen inside Lebanon.

Hezbollah said in a statement carried by al-Manar news channel that it was now in control of the drone.

The IDF said the drone had fallen in Lebanese territory during an operation near the border demarcation known as the Blue Line and that there was “no breach of information.”
