Lebanon’s Hezbollah said that two Israeli drones that crashed in Beirut’s southern suburbs on Sunday were carrying explosives.
The Iran-backed movement said in a statement late on Monday that experts examined the first drone.
The suburbs “were subjected to an attack by rigged drones,” with the first one failing to cause a blast and the second exploding, it said.
After the two drones crashed on Sunday, Hezbollah’s leader Hassan Nasrallah warned Israeli soldiers at the border to await a response.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday that Israel is ready to use “all means necessary” to defend itself against Iranian threats “on several fronts.”
