Israel Shoots Down Hezbollah Drone, Sends Warning To Lebanese Government

Donate

The Israeli military announced on March 26 that it had shot down an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) of Lebanon’s Hezbollah.

Avichay Adraee, a spokesman for the Israeli military, said that the UAV was shot down after violating Israel’s airspace. The wreckage of the downed UAV was recovered by the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF).

“The IDF sees the incident as a dangerous violation of the sovereignty of the State of Israel and it consider the Lebanese state responsible for everything that happens from its territory,” the spokesman said.

The spokesman shared a photo of the UAV, which appeared to be based on the commercially-available Skywalker X8. Yemen’s Houthis and Syrian militants are known for modifying this type of drones for combat uses.


Hezbollah has not commented on the Israeli claims, thus far. The Lebanese government is also ignoring the alleged incident.

The downing of the UAV could lead to a military escalation as Israel may respond to the “violation.” Hezbollah had threatened Tell Aviv with a fierce response to any attack on Lebanon or its troops in Syria.

    i did say that iran was training Hezbollah drone operators at the homs air base, in a few year hezbollah will give Lebanon its own air force of armed drones.

      Hezbollah also has the Bavar 373 and other SAM systems now too. A convoy passed al-Qaim crossing a weak ago.

    Nobody cares about it here today, we have bigger news.

    • Stef

      what is that big news my friend ?

      • <>

        Netanyahu’s rival Benny Gantz decided to join his government, ending a political crises that has lasted for more than a year. By doing so, he betrayed over million voters that demanded to end Netanyahu’s corruption. It’s like Putin’s biggest rival joins him and end any opposition, a sad day to Israel.

        • Stef

          thats too sad. I also read that hte corona virus is spreading fast in israel is that true ?

          • <>

            Yeah, around 2700 confirmed cases and 5 dead so far. We are under quarantine since last week, everything is closed except for food stores and pharmacies. We can deal with the virus, but Netanyahu is far more dangerous than it.

          • verner

            I’m under the impression that the virus was developed and manufactured in tel aviv with the express purpose to be let loose on Iran and China as seen as enemies by the parasitic squatters in palestine and the dysfunctional states of A respectively and italy, spain and other countries in europe just collateral damage. just for that reason it’s necessary to wipe the jews off the face of this world.

            Surely you jest? They did after all come out with a vaccine before the rest of the world …

          • verner

            what vaccine is it you refer to?

          • verner

            if they had a vaccine before the event of the corona, then it’s clear that the jews used the virus for their war fare program

            hopefully it will be contained soon

          • <>

            And hopefully you and your entire family would be wiped out too from the virus.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            The best news, hope the Jew scum are wiped out soon :)

        • Jakke1899

          What about the criminal accusations against Netanyahu then?
          Wasn’t he supposed to be questioned about this, what’s the progress on this matter?

          • <>

            He postponed his own trial to May, using the corona virus as an excuse to close courts and escape justice. Since Gantz joined him, he would probably vote against any law that may send Netanyahu to jail and keep his government alive. A real spit in the face to center-left Israelis, he said it’s better than having a fourth elections, but we just see it as a betrayal. The courts are still closed, so his criminal accusations would have to wait till the judges start the trial, God knows when.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      The Jew scum are shit scared to fire a single bullet in the direction of Lebanon as they know the consequences. The evil parasitic Zionist scum are destined to die.

  • ColinNZ

    So the relentless violator of the airspace of all it’s neighbours has a hissy fit on the rarist of occasions that one of it’s neighbours (allegedly) violates theirs …. move along folks, nothing to see here but routine empire-of-chaos hypocrisy.

  • Zionism = EVIL

    The Zionists are scared shitless as Iran and Hezbollah have doubled their forces in Syria, Southern Lebanon and in the region. Iran has direct control over the Tehran-Beirut highway and Hezbollah is now sending regular intel collection drones to probe the Zionist anus.
