Hezbollah targets Israeli drone in West Bekaa
Hezbollah targeted an Israeli drone over the Bekaa Valley in the village of Meidoun on Thursday night with anti-aircraft fire, media reports said, amid conflicting reports on whether the drone was shot down or not.
Videos circulated online showed Hezbollah anti-aircraft systems opening fire at the drone, while a source has told American news website Long War Journal that the drone was unharmed by the fire.
The incident comes amid heightened tensions between Hezbollah and Israel, since Israel moved a production vessel into Karish, parts of which are claimed by Lebanon. Hezbollah threatened Israel against proceeding with extraction, while Lebanese authorities called for the resumption of U.S.-mediated negotiations over the border demarcation with Israel.
