On Wednesday, Israel scrambled jets after an Iranian drone entered from Lebanon.
“Moments ago, IDF troops spotted a drone from Lebanese territory that entered the airspace of the State of Israel and then returned to Lebanese territory. The drone was tracked by [IDF] forces,” the Israeli army said in a statement.
According to military officials, the aircraft quickly returned to Lebanese territory.
The incident came hours after Israel reportedly targeted sites in Syria controlled by the Lebanese Hezbollah terrorist group. According to Syrian and Lebanese reports, the target of the predawn strike by Israel was infrastructure set up by Hezbollah in the area of Tel al-Harra in recent months, following Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad’s conquering of the area last summer.
Wednesday’s excitement comes less than a day after the IDF’s commanding general of Northern Command warned that Lebanon’s Iran-backed Hezbollah militant group was building up a “terrorist infrastructure” along the border
