The Israeli army denies any drones crashed in Lebanon today, after a Hezbollah-affiliated outlet claimed that one did near the Wazzani river.

Lebanon regularly complains about Israeli surveillance drones invading its airspace, but the IDF maintains that such incursions are necessary to track the activities of the terror group.

Still, a military spokesperson tells The Times of Israel that no army drones crashed in Lebanon today and it is not aware of the incident reported by al-Manar.
