On Thursday, the IDF reported downing a Hezbollah drone entering Israeli territory from Lebanon. It was Hezbollah’s sixth unmanned aircraft to be intercepted by the army in the past year, the last of which was downed last month.

On Wednesday, Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah bragged on TV that his terrorist group can convert its thousands of rockets into precision missiles, and produce drones with help from “experts from the Islamic Republic of Iran.”

“We have been producing drones in Lebanon for a long time, and whoever wants to buy them, submit an order,” Nasrallah said.
