‘Israeli’ Drone Violates Lebanese Airspace, Flies Low over Southern Suburbs – Army Statement
By Staff, Agencies
The Zionist enemy committed yet another violation of the Lebanese sovereignty, as an ‘Israeli’ spy drone flew low above Beirut’s southern suburbs Saturday night, a statement from the Lebanese Army said Sunday.
The aircraft entered Lebanese airspace at around 10:30 p.m. Saturday and hovered for a short time over the Mouawad area of Beirut’s southern suburbs, before ascending to higher altitude and departing, according to the Army statement.
Local media reported that officers from the Army’s Intelligence Branch deployed in large numbers in the area and that snipers climbed onto rooftops to try and bring down the drone.
The statement said that the Army had taken “appropriate action.” The same Mouawad neighborhood was targeted in an ‘Israeli’ drone attack in August.
On Aug. 25, two drones flew over the area. One crashed and a second exploded shortly after, causing significant damage to nearby buildings, including Hezbollah’s media offices.
Lebanese Defense Minister Elias Bou Saab described the incident as the “most dangerous hostile act” committed by the Zionist entity since the 2006 war.
