"... The leader of the Lebanese movement Hezbollah has said that his organisation launched an Iranian-built drone that was shot down in Israeli airspace last week."A sophisticated reconnaissance aircraft was sent from Lebanese territory ... and travelled hundreds of kilometres over the sea before crossing enemy lines and into occupied Palestine," Hassan Nasrallah said on television on Thursday.
He said the drone had overflown sensitive sites in Israel.
"Possession of such an aerial capacity is a first in the history of any resistance movement in Lebanon and the region," he said.
"It's not the first time [that a drone was sent] and it will not be the last. We can reach all the zones" of Israel, said Nasrallah, referring to a less sophisticated drone sent by Hezbollah during Lebanon's 2006 conflict with Israel.
He said the drone was "Iranian built and assembled in Lebanon", and was refered to as "Ayoub"...."
