Lebanese army opens fire on Israeli drone violating border

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Lebanese Army personnel fired on Wednesday at an Israeli unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that violated the border.

This was reported by Al-Wataniya . According to him, the drone was seen in the sky over the border area of ​​Mays al-Jabal and was moving in the direction of the village of Mahallet-Kurum in the Marjayoun region. Open fire from the ground made the UAV turn back towards the territory of Israel.

The Lebanese Armed Forces command had previously ordered the troops stationed in the south of the country to shoot down enemy UAVs invading Lebanese airspace.

Last August, the country’s Supreme Defense Council affirmed “the right of the Lebanese to use all means to repel Israeli attacks.” This decision followed an August 25 attack by two Israeli drones at the Hezbollah’s Shiite information center in southern Beirut. As a result, three employees were injured.
