Hezbollah Shot Down Never-Seen-Before Israeli Drone Over South Lebanon (Photos)

On September 30, Hezbollah announced that its fighters had shot down an Israeli drone over its heartland, South Lebanon.

In a statement, Hezbollah said that the drone was targeted with “suitable weapons” while it was flying over Maryamen valley near the town of Yater.

The Lebanese group shared photos of the small drone that was clearly made up of commercially-available parts. The drone is powered by five electric engines, four directed downward, most like for vertical takeoff and landing, and a larger one directed backward, apparently the drone’s main propellant. The drone also has short fixed wings.

The drone’s main payload was a Sony Alpha mirrorless digital camera that was installed under the main body on a stabilized gimbal. The drone was also equipped with a small forward-looking camera.

Avichay Adraee, a spokesman for the Israeli Defense Forces, acknowledged that a drone was lost over Lebanon without elaborating.

“A while ago, during a regular activity, a military drone fell inside Lebanese territory,” Adraee said. “The incident is under investigation.”

Hezbollah and the Lebanese military shot down several small Israeli military drones over the last few years. The IDF does not usually respond to such incidents.

The drone shot down by Hezbollah over Maryamen valley was apparently especially designed to carry out a specific mission. The Lebanese group rapid response confirms that the drone was flying over a sensitive area.

The Tribesman are now resorting to WalMart and Amazon for their drone parts. Things must be getting pretty dire for them.

farbat

as usual the zionist telemetric issues are horrible for sure they probably still believe that their technology is superior in some way when its just backwards delusion and playing around with software doesnt make them special since most high tech based issues they call themselves superior in are only software based

the whole difference here is that hezbollah isnt just a fake usurper acting tough and puffing the chest behind a big wall hezbollah jumps into the fire because we do move towards the chaos and not away from it since we seek to bring the order to things

Hezbollah is kind of usurper actually because they want to replace Phoenician Lebanon with Shia Arabism.

Jnoub

If that were true, they would’ve done that by now

Chris Gr

They have

lol

“Shia Arabism” 🤣

Icarus Tanović

Ahahahahaha, the punk is drunk.

Peppe il Sicario

He is pretty stupid, isn’t he???? 😋😋

Chris Gr

Talks the one with the name of the Sicarii.

Peppe il Sicario

Siculi and Sicani, we have sicario in our name. You just don’t get it you uneducated nimwit.

Chris Gr

And who cares?

farbat

what is phoenician about those people you talk about phoenician were a somewhat iranic group anyway so why are you annoyed about lebanese being close to iran the truth is that you are annoyed about not having your zionists there taking the whole place from the lebanese and usurping this place aswell

Chris Gr

Phoenician is Semitic and I mean the way of life not these radical Muslims.

Dave

The level of unintellectuality here is simply astounding. Phoenicians spoke a Semitic language, i.e. Phoenician, which is close to Hebrew and somewhat more remotely related to Aramaic and Arabic. Nothing Iranian. Sure, for brief intervalls, the Achaemenids and later Sassanians occupied their former territory. Placenames and other remnants in Lebanon show that they’re a really largely descendents of Phoenician (which much admixture, of course. Really, 7 likes for such rubbish. SF really needs a new readership. Such things can even be looked up online.

Really? Hows that? Everyone living in Lebanon including Hezbollah supporters are Phonecian who now speak Arabic – there is nt anyone in Lebanon, Sunni/Shia/Druze/Christian who speak Phonecian. Could you enlighten us further on your brain-dead claim?

Chris Gr

The heritage I mean. Hezbollah wants to create a Shia crescent.

Dave

That’s of course nonsense. Shiite Islam has developed in areas that were strongly influenced by old religions and newer ones. Some elements of Shia particularity e.g. is close to Judaism, such as food taboos that Sunnis don’t have (no rabbit, not shell fish). Some elements are similar to Gnosis and Neoplatonism (Metemphotosis) etc. Really, A mule knows more about flying than you guys about history.

Chris Gr

Maybe

vikziv

I’m kind of senile lately, but 2006 is the answer.

anyway zionists are in no position to attack lebanon if lebanon for example was in a crisis like a fuel crisis and not even a car would be running maybe that would be an excuse to try but this isnt the reality in lebanon there are no crisis going to happen so forget it and watch how lebanese will have cheaper fuel and energy than you zionists meanwhile

this almost looks as if the zionists seek to copy the resistance not even iran but like yemen or so because its that much university level of tech

farbat

the zionists dont seem to think straight because even a 1000s of those and all their capabilities they have are still not enough to solve their issue in little gaza because the gazans will destroy a 1000s of those drones its just absurd this struggle

Corrupt shithole of Ukropisstan

Thats a rudamentary cheapo drone.
No funding from Uncle Sam?
Oy vey ..

Ahson

lol……looks like someone put this contraption together in his garage no?

goingbrokes

Yep, it is probably a student stunt.

Peppe il Sicario

It’s Nutty-yoyo’s new hobby since he’s unemployed now and most of his friends, like Trump, too!

how much does even this cheap drone cost each to the zionists who are depending on the sea for trade and who will soon enough find out that they will be cut out from the sea entirely

gary

Maybe a trojan horse

Arch Bungle

Never seen before. Never seen after.

More crashed garbage. Where is obama with his ridiculous “give us our drone back” demand to Iran. Idiotic clown.
