The Israel Defense Forces says it downed a small Hezbollah drone that entered Israeli airspace from southern Lebanon yesterday.
The military says the drone was “monitored throughout the entire event.”
The drone was not armed, the IDF says, likely indicating it was performing a reconnaissance mission of some kind.
An IDF spokesperson says the day-long delay in reporting the incident was necessary in order to investigate the device after it was brought down.
“The IDF will continue to act to prevent violations of the sovereignty of the State of Israel,” the military says.
