Hezbollah claims creditfor launch of drone
BEIRUT — The leader of the Lebanese militant Hezbollah group claimed responsibility Thursday for launching the drone aircraft that entered Israeli airspace this week.
The rare admission by Hassan Nasrallah raises regional tensions at a sensitive time when the group’s backers, Syria and Iran, are under pressure.
Earlier Thursday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Hezbollah, which Israel and the U.S. consider a terrorist group, of launching the drone.
The unmanned aircraft was shot down by Israel, but the infiltration marked a rare breach of Israel’s airspace.
Hezbollah had been the leading suspect because of its arsenal of sophisticated Iranian weapons and a history of trying to deploy similar aircraft.
