The Israeli army claimed Friday it had failed to intercept a drone fired from Lebanon and invaded the country’s airspace.
“It is obvious from the early inquiry that earlier today, a small wireless drone was seen inside Lebanon, moving towards Israeli land,” army spokesman Avichay Adraee tweeted.
“After violating Israeli sovereignty and following it up through monitoring systems, helicopters and warplanes were summoned, in addition to deploying an interceptor missile from the Iron Dome without being able to stop it,” he claimed.
Adraee stated that “after a few minutes, the little drone returned to Lebanon.” An earlier military statement indicated that the drone had been intercepted.
There was no comment from Lebanese authorities on the report.
