On Aug. 11, the IDF downed a drone likely operated by Hezbollah as it infiltrated Israeli airspace.
The IDF said a day after the incident that the drone “was monitored” by the military “throughout the incident.”
Hezbollah possesses a fleet of Iranian-made military drones that it received from smuggling efforts in recent years, according to multiple assessments.
