Hezbollah Admits To Launching Drone Into Israel

The leader of Lebanese Shia militant movement Hezbollah has said that his group was behind the launch of a drone shot down over Israel last week.

Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah told the movement’s television network that the drone was made in Iran and had flown over “sensitive sites” in Israel.

Israeli fighter planes shot down the drone north of the Negev desert after it entered from the Mediterranean. Israel’s prime minister has again vowed to defend the country’s borders.
