Lebanese newspaper Al-Jumhuriyah reported Wednesday that the equipment onboard the Hezbollah drone that infiltrated Israeli airspace was manufactured in Germany.


It was reportedly purchased by a dummy Iranian corporation which arms the Revolutionary Guards.

The Lebanese newspaper named Germany's Siemens and Bockstiegel as the companies from which the equipment was acquired.


According to the report, Hezbollah owns many drones similar to the one infiltrated Israel which are used for spy missions only. "The aircraft can carry 3 kg of explosives only," sources told the paper.


Previous reports suggested the drone was able to carry dozens of kilograms of explosives.


Meanwhile, a State Department source denied that Iran had extracted information from the US drone that crashed in its territory earlier this year.
