Lebanon’s southern border has been unusually active in recent days, witnessing activities ranging from full-blown military operations to the more subtle “drone hostility.”
Fortunately, the latter has been more common than the former, and the latest case of drones in South Lebanon making headlines took place on Thursday afternoon, while civil defense members were working to extinguish a fire.
According to the National News Agency, two Israeli drones flew over Lebanese territory, at a low altitude, and dropped what was later found to be a glass bottle and a small bag into the area wherein the firefighters had been attempting to control the fire.
UNIFIL in the vicinity of Houla, Marjaayoun, where the curious incident unfolded, took note of the drones, and a video later began to circulate social media, showing one of the drones as it dropped the bottle.
The two drones later retreated and no further details were reported about their action.
Interestingly, this marks the 3rd drone-related incident to take place on the southern border this month.
