An explosion rocked the Lebanese capital just as Israel was bombing ‘Iranian targets’ in Syria. The blast was a result of an ‘Israeli drone attack’ in which one UAV crashed and another one prematurely exploded, Hezbollah claims.
A small drone failed to detonate and crashed in the southern suburb of Beirut, while the second drone exploded near the militant group’s media center, damaging the building, Hezbollah spokesperson told news agencies. No casualties were reported in the incidents which the organization immediately blamed on Israel.
Unverified pictures surfaced online showing the debris that resemble a quad-copter similar to the drones which Israel uses for surveilance and to deploy tear gas in Gaza border clashes. Israel has yet to confirm carrying out any operations against Hezbollah, which it considers a terrorist organization closely allied with Iran. (RT)
