Lebanon’s resistance movement Hezbollah repelled an intruding Israeli drone near the country’s Southern town of Nabatiyeh, Lebanese media reported.

RNA - Al-Mayadeen television channel and Unews Press Agency reported that the incident took place on Thursday, as Hezbollah shot a missile at the unmanned aircraft encroaching on the Lebanese airspace over Nabatiyeh.

Lebanon's al-Manar TV channel also reported that Hezbollah targeted an Israeli drone over the country’s South "with appropriate weapons" and forced it to leave.

The Israeli regime confirmed that an anti-aircraft missile had been launched from the Lebanese territory at one of its drones but the unmanned aircraft had not been struck.

According to Fars News Agency, the development comes amid heightened tensions between Hezbollah and the Tel Avivi regime.

Last Wednesday, an Israeli unmanned aerial vehicle was brought down while flying over Southern Lebanon, with Lebanese broadcaster MTV reporting that the Hezbollah resistance movement had shot it down.

In August 25, two Israeli drones — which Hezbollah said were on a bombing mission — crashed in the Hezbollah stronghold in the South of the Lebanese capital, Beirut.
