August 23, 2020: Lebanese armed group Hezbollah said it has shot down an Israeli drone near Ayta ash Shab in southern Lebanon on Saturday, according to Hezbollah-affiliated Al-Manar news. The Israeli military confirmed that the drone was downed by the group in Lebanese territory, The Jerusalem Post reported citing the report.





It added there were no reports of information being leaked. It is to be noted that Ayta ash Shab is situated near the Israeli town of Shtula in northern Israel.





Israel is technically at war with Lebanon. The Jewish state late last month said it had repelled an attempt by Hezbollah fighters to penetrate the border. But the Shiite Lebanese group Hezbollah denied any involvement in the incident, which came after an alleged Israeli missile attack hit positions of Syrian regime forces and their allies south of Damascus, killing five. In September 2019, Hezbollah vowed to down Israeli drones overflying Lebanon following an incident a month earlier when two packed with explosives targeted Hezbollah's stronghold of south Beirut.
