Israeli drone shot down over south Lebanon, says Hezbollah
The Shiite movement's Al-Manar television said members of the group had "downed a drone belonging to the Israeli army... in southern Lebanon".
Israeli army spokesman Avichay Adraee confirmed in an Arabic-language tweet that one of its drones had fallen "inside Lebanese territory during a routine operation".
Lebanon and Israel are technically in a state of war.
On August 12, the Israeli army said it had shot down the previous night a drone from Hezbollah that had crossed into Israeli airspace.
The announcement came nearly a week after Hezbollah fired a volley of rockets at Israeli positions, prompting retaliatory shelling.
It also followed a flare-up along the Lebanon-Israel border in early August that saw Israel carry out its first airstrikes on Lebanese territory in seven years, and Hezbollah claim a direct rocket attack on Israeli territory for the first time since 2019.
In the summer of 2006, Israel and Hezbollah fought a 33-day war that killed 1,200 people in Lebanon, mostly civilians, and 160 Israelis, mostly soldiers.
It ended with a UN-backed ceasefire on August 14 2006.
