Report: Unmanned Israeli aircraft targets ‎spy facility in Lebanon ‎- Shlomi Diaz

by Shlomi Diaz

Lebanese media reports claim Israeli aircraft bombed an intelligence facility ‎northeast of Tyre • No Israeli source corroborates report

An unmanned Israeli aircraft reportedly targeted an ‎intelligence facility in Lebanon overnight Sunday, Lebanese ‎media reported. ‎

According to the reports, the aircraft bombed a facility located between the villages of Zrariyeh and Hallousiyeh, ‎northeast of Tyre.‎

Eyewitnesses reported hearing explosions and seeing several fighter jets in the area's skies.
There was no immediate corroboration for the report from any Israeli source.

If true, this would mark the first time Israel has ‎raided targets over its northern borders since Sept. 18, when Syrian missiles shot down a Russian reconnaissance plane over Syria while fending off an Israeli airstrike.

Addressing the U.N. General Assembly last month, ‎Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu revealed that ‎Hezbollah, Iran's proxy in Lebanon, was building ‎three missile production sites in Beirut. ‎

Over the weekend, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah warned his followers that any response to allegations would be giving the enemy "free information" and declared that his  organization would not comment on ‎the Israeli claims.

‎"Our policy is to maintain ambiguity," ‎Nasrallah said. ‎
