Israel Shoots Down Drone From Lebanon
An unmanned aircraft was shot down six miles north of the port of Haifa.
It was the second time in the past seven months that Israeli airspace was penetrated by a drone. A senior government official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the incident is under investigation, described it as a serious breach, saying such unmanned aircraft are intended to search for possible targets, probe defenses or create a provocation.
In an announcement broadcast on its television channel, Hezbollah denied involvement with the drone intercepted Thursday. Israeli officials said it remained unclear who was remotely piloting the aircraft.
