Syrian and Lebanese News Agencies Claim Israeli Drone Downed

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

Two news agencies in Lebanon and Syria claimed Wednesday evening that an Israeli drone was downed, possibly by a SAM anti-missile that was fired from Syria. The official Lebanese National News Agency reported, “The tail of a surface-to-air missile (SAM) fired from Syria fell in the outskirts of the Lebanese town of Deir al-Ashayer,” near the border between Syria and Lebanon and approximately 15 west of Damascus.

Last month, Israel is assumed to have been behind the aerial bombing in the same area of a truck convoy carrying advanced Soviet-made SA-17 anti-aircraft missiles intended for Hizbullah.

Israel has not commented on the reports of a downed drone but has stated several times it conducts surveillance flights over Lebanon to monitor terrorist activity and the transfer of weapons from Syria to Hizbullah in Lebanon.
