JERUSALEM, Israel – The IDF says it downed a drone that was fired from Lebanon by Hezbollah into northern Israel Tuesday night.

The military released a picture of the drone and said in a statement that the device was “monitored by our soldiers throughout the incident.”

“The IDF will continue to operate against any attempt by terrorists to violate Israeli sovereignty,” the Israel Defense Forces said in a statement.

Tuesday’s incident came after the second anniversary of the US assassination of top Iranian nuclear scientist Qassem Soleimani. The Lebanon-based Hezbollah terror group is backed by the Iranian government and seeks Israel’s destruction. 

In August, the IDF reported that it downed a similar drone following an intense exchange of fire between Hezbollah and Israel. 

Israeli officials say Hezbollah is harboring more than one hundred thousand rockets that can hit almost anywhere inside Israel.
