Israeli military officials subsequently confirmed the report.

“About an hour ago, gunfire was heard in Lebanese territory, towards an area where IDF unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) were flying,” said a statement from the IDF.

“The drones completed their mission and no damage was caused.”

There has still been no comment from the Lebanese military.
