Israeli army says downs drone arriving from Lebanon Aug 07, 2020
Israeli troops overnight "identified a drone which infiltrated into Israeli airspace in the Mount Hermon area, along the Israeli side of the Blue Line" demarcating the Jewish state and Lebanon, the army said.
"The drone was monitored and downed," it said, adding Israeli troops were conducting searches in the area.
Mount Hermon is a strategic and fortified outpost at the crossroads between Israel, Lebanon and Syria.
It did not disclose the type of drone, its size or who it suspected of dispatching it.
The Jewish state late last month said it had repelled an attempt by Hezbollah fighters to penetrate the border, but the Lebanese group denied any involvement in the incident.
That border clash came a week after an alleged Israeli missile attack hit positions of Syrian regime forces and their allies south of Damascus, killing five.
