An Israeli reconnaissance drone has gone down in northern Lebanon after it penetrated into the country’s airspace and flew over parts of the Arab state in a flagrant violation of a UN Security Council resolution.

The unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) crossed into Lebanon’s airspace early on Saturday and carried out surveillance flights before crashing into waters off the coast of the port city of Tripoli at around 8:30 a.m. local time (0530 GMT), according to a statement issued by the Lebanese military.

A security official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the army retrieved the aircraft from eight meters (26 feet) under water.

The Israeli military has not yet made any comments on the incident.

On June 21, an Israeli fighter jet struck a mountainous area near the town of Saghbine in Lebanon’s Bekaa Valley, located about 70 kilometers (44 miles) east of the capital, to destroy the wreckage of an Israeli spy drone that had earlier crashed in the area.

Video footage broadcast by Lebanon-based and Arabic-language al-Manar satellite television network showed the remains of the Israeli aircraft, including what looked to be a wing and twisted pieces of metal.

Israel violates Lebanon’s airspace on an almost daily basis, claiming the flights serve surveillance purposes.

Lebanon’s government, the Hezbollah resistance movement, and the UN Interim Force in Lebanon, UNIFIL, have repeatedly condemned the overflights, saying they are in clear violation of UN Resolution 1701 and the country’s sovereignty.

UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which brokered a ceasefire in the war of aggression Israel launched against Lebanon in 2006, calls on Israel to respect Lebanon's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Jess, I am sure, The Iran (via Hezbollah) will take care for the (now poor) reminders of this drone for defense-tactical purposes.
Thanks for posting this uplifting (in the end) story

The oddest part is that the forces in the area upon which Israel is most interested in spying, Hezbollah and ISIS, are also known threats to the Lebanese government. If the two governments were just more willing to deal with each other, the Lebanese one would have had every reason to invite the surveillance in exchange for information-sharing which I suspect Israeli one would have been happy to do.

PressTV.ir is just another of Arab Dawah Propaganda sites.

Prince Talal's 32 Billion for Dawah dissemination brings its fruits.

Parsifal, you have hit the nail on the head!

I do not agree with Stan - clearly.
Discrediting news and information, when it does not serve certain interests, seems to be the usual attempts to control the narrative.

A quick peek at presstv.ir tells exactly which "certain interests" that site serves.

Another peek at Jess's article shows the level of Jihad she supports.

No further discredit is required.

Zionist Bob Algeron

You have seen better times.

Adding the few remaining news outlets who will not dance to the tune of the fascist settler state to hasbara's highhanded 'disrespect' list can only convince the already dumbed down

Zionist Parsifal S.

You have seen better times too.

The nuclear agreement that your buddies signed may send your friends and relatives flying high and evaporating fast, together with either Israelis, Saudis or Americans.

32 Billion Dollars that Saudi Prince Talal gave for Islamization of America one can buy lots of news outlets. And already bought. You are right.

But think, Parsifal: where will you, Jess, Carrie and the rest of the brigade go if West gets its Islamization completed and turns into another Iran or Syria...

do you take yourself serious Zionist classclown Algeron ?

Over the years you have depraved to a laughingstock.

Why telling us the thing with the mass murderer Wahhabist Talal, he's the ally of the fascist government you support, go tell him, and complain to the regime of Tel Aviv
