The Lebanese army statement said it was following up on the violation with UN peacekeepers but gave no further details, Reuters reported.
The Israeli military said, “A short while ago, fires broke out in the Lebanese border area. The fires originate with operations by our forces in the area.”
On Saturday, Leader of the Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah Seyed Hassan said that Israel “must pay a price” for its last week attacks into a southern suburb of the Lebanese capital Beirut where Hezbollah enjoys massive support.
He said giving a proper response to Israel over the drone incursions was about “establishing the rules of engagement and ... the logic of protection” for Lebanon.
“Israel should know that the Lebanese air space is not open to her,” said Nasrallah in a televised speech, adding that the Israel attack open the door to assassinations if left unanswered.
