(VIDEO) IDF detects drone as it leaves Lebanese skies; intercepts it over Israeli waters near Krayot area
VIDEO - The IDF intercepted a Hizbullah drone over northern Israel on Monday.

 

The drone was shot down over Israeli waters near the Krayot area; it was detected by IDF forces immediately upon leaving Lebanese territory.

 

The IDF honed in on the drove as it was launched in Lebanon, at around 7 p.m. Less than 10 minutes later F-16 jets downed the drone which flew at a low altitude over the sea at a speed of approximately 150 kilometers an hour.

 

The drone was downed 10 kilometers off the coast, north-west of Haifa.

Hizbullah has flown Marsad-type drones over Israel on a number of occasions; the IDF looked into the possibility that such a drone struck the Navy vessel off the coast of Beirut, but it was later revealed that an Iranian missile hit the corvette.

 

The last report of a Hizbullah drone flying over Israel was received on the eve of the Ariel Sharon – George W. Bush White House summit in April 2005.

 

Hizbullah members said at the time that the drone took photographs of 18 communities in northern Israel, including the coastal cities of Nahariya and Akko. 

 

During a similar occurrence in November 2004, a drone exploded before returning to base.

 

At the time, Hizbullah spokesmen said the raid was in retaliation for “enemy violations” of Lebanese airspace.
