Hezbollah says it shot down Israeli drone over southern Lebanon

Nasrallah War on Iran will spell end of Israel US regional presence Hezbollah says it shot down Israeli drone over southern Lebanon

According to Al Arabiya, said the base struck on Monday belongs to the Popular Mobilization Forces, an Iraqi state-sponsored umbrella organization founded in 2014 comprising some 40 militias mostly made up of Shi'ite Muslim groups, but also including some Sunnis, Christians and Yazidis who are fighting the Islamic State jihadist organization.

Last month, Nasrallah said his group would confront and shoot down any Israeli drones that enter Lebanese airspace. It said that the drone was "simple" and that there was no risk of a breach of information if it fell into enemy hands.

He said this does not mean U.N. Security Council Resolution 1701, which ended the 2006 war, would not be respected, but that Lebanon and its people had the right to self-defence.

In a statement accompanied by satellite images, the Israeli military said Hezbollah, with Iranian assistance, had brought specialised equipment to a weapons factory near the village of al-Nabi Shaith with the intention to set up a production line for precision-guided missiles.

The Israeli military said a "drone on a routine mission in northern Israel fell", without elaborating on what it was doing or how it was downed.

Referring to the latest exchange of hostilities with Israel, Nasrallah said Lebanon has "imposed itself on world powers".

Downing of the drone came against a backdrop of heightened tensions between Hezbollah and the Israeli military.

Last week, Israel and Hizbullah traded fire for the first time in years. Hariri received Schenker who will mediate between Lebanon and Israel over a maritime border dispute.

"Earlier this morning, a number of rockets were launched from Syria towards Israel, all failed to hit Israeli territory", a statement from Israel's military said.

Tension ran high after Israel targeted Hezbollah's positions in Syria's capital Damascus on August 24, killing two members of the movement. Israel said the attack thwarted an Iranian-orchestrated drone attack squad. "And if you think a war on Iran will end the axis of resistance, I assure to you that the contrary will take place and Israel will cease to exist due to that".
