(Worthy News) - An Israeli drone was downed in Lebanon Sunday night simultaneous to a bevy of rockets fired at Israel from Syria.
Hezbollah said it had captured an Israeli Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) late Sunday, which the IDF later confessed as its own, but which it said was only engaged in a routine flight.
Al Jazeera reported that it was the first time since the second Lebanon war in 2006 that Hezbollah had downed an Israeli drone, with correspondent Zeina Kodr noting that “what we're seeing is Israel expanding its operations against Iran wherever it can.”
On Monday the IDF said that “a number of rockets” had been fired toward Israel Sunday night at the direction of the Quds Force of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corps in Syria, but “failed to hit Israeli territory.”
What seemed to be a reprisal attack on the Syria-Iraq border by unidentified UAVs subsequently killed 18 members of an Iran-backed militia near the fledgling Imam Ali compound that the Quds Force is building.
