More than 10 Israeli soldiers fired warning shots into the air close to Lebanese Army troops Tuesday as they recovered parts of an Israeli drone that crashed in mysterious circumstances, security sources said.
Eleven Israeli soldiers crossed the barbed wire technical fence at Kroum al-Shiraki but did not go past the Blue Line. The soldiers surveyed the area for 15 minutes, during which they scanned the area with a detector. According to security sources, the soldiers found three pieces of an Israeli spy drone that had fallen earlier that day under mysterious circumstances next to Mays al-Jabal.
As they were recovering the drone’s parts, the Israeli soldiers shot in the air to discourage Lebanese Army soldiers stationed by the Blue Line from approaching. The Israeli soldiers then withdrew and Lebanese Army and UNIFIL troops mobilized at Mays al-Jabal.
