The Israeli drone that exploded over the Lebanese capital Beirut caused extensive damage to Hezbollah’s media center, the Iranian proxy’s spokesman said on Sunday, adding that the second drone is in Hezbollah’s possession.
Israel deems the heavily armed Shi’ite Hezbollah movement, backed by Iran, as the biggest threat across its border. They fought a month-long war in 2006 in which nearly 1,200 people, mostly civilians, died in Lebanon and 158 people died in Israel, mostly soldiers.
Lebanon has complained to the United Nations about Israeli planes regularly violating its airspace in recent years.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the strikes in Syria on Saturday thwarted a planned Iranian attack in Israel.
