Hezbollah's official TV station Al Manar released on Friday a video clip simulating the flight of the drone
aircraft that entered Israeli
airspace earlier this week.
The TV station released the clip shortly after Hezbollah
Chief Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah
for launching the drone.
It is not yet clear whether the video adequately simulates the shape of the aircraft, which is said to have been manufactured by Iran.
In the video clip, the drone is equipped with a camera which allegedly managed to take photos of various locations it flew over.

Meanwhile, earlier this week, Yedioth Ahronoth exposed new details on the downing of the drone over Yatir Forest. According to the report, the first missile fired by the F-16 jet missed the drone. The second Panther missile, the IDF's
most advanced air-to-air missile, hit the target.
The video clip further said that the aircraft took off from Lebanon
and flew along Israel's coastline. According to the clip, the drone entered "Israel's operational airspace" – an IAF controlled space located 150 km from the coastline.
During its flight over Israel's southern coastline, the drone managed to fly undetected over the radars of Israeli, US and Western ships. The video clip further claimed that the aircraft flew over Israel's oil rigs that are located deep in the Mediterranean.
The exact location of the drone's penetration into Israeli airspace was not mentioned in the video. Three possible locations along Israel's southern coastline are mentioned in the video in accordance with the locations mentioned in Israeli media.
After the drone penetrated Israel's airspace, it managed to successfully pass by the Iron Dome
system's radar without being detected.
The video clip then said that the aircraft managed to fly over some of the IDF's most important bases in the south, including Hatzerim and other air force bases.
According to the clip, when the drone reached Israel's nuclear reactor in Dimona,
it was detected and shot down.
