Israel opens new front against Lebanon, with two drones hitting Hezbollah targets in Beirut – Zionis

Lebanon’s military says two Israeli drones hit Hizballah’s stronghold in south Beirut, while the Iran-backed Shi’ite movement says one of the aircraft damaged its media center.

The two aircraft violated Lebanese airspace at dawn over the southern suburbs of the Lebanese capital, an army statement said on August 25, adding: “The first fell while the second exploded in the air causing material damage.”

Prime Minister Saad Hariri called it a “blatant attack on Lebanon’s sovereignty” and said this “new aggression” represents a threat to regional stability.

A Hizballah spokesman, Mohamed Afif, said that one of the two drones was rigged with explosives and “exploded causing huge damage to the media center. Hizballah did not shoot down any drone,” Afif said.

Israeli officials did not comment on the incident, which came hours after Israel said it had struck Iranian forces in neighboring Syria to prevent a pending attack “using killer drones.”
