IDF Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari in a press conference says there is no damage to the Israeli Air Force’s ability to detect incoming threats, after a Hezbollah explosive-laden drone struck a grounded missile-detecting blimp last night.

He says the drone struck “a balloon that was on the ground” at a military base near the Golani Junction, some 35 kilometers from the Lebanon border. The aerostat, known as Sky Dew, is not yet operational.

“There are no injuries and there is no damage to the IDF’s ability to build an aerial image of the area. The IDF acts against Hezbollah’s drones and the aerial threat on all borders,” he says.
