Hezbollah confirms sending drone into Israeli airspace

Press TV – October 11, 2012

Hezbollah Secretary-General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah confirms the Lebanese resistance movement has sent a drone deep into the Israeli airspace evading radar systems.

The operation code-named Hussein Ayub saw Hezbollah’s drone fly hundreds of kilometers into the Israeli airspace and getting very close to Dimona nuclear plant without being detected by advanced Israeli and US radars, Nasrallah said during a televised speech late on Thursday.

“This is only part of our capabilities,” he stressed, adding that Israelis have admitted to their security failure despite being provided with the latest technologies by Western powers.

Hezbollah secretary-general stated that Hezbollah’s drones are made in Iran but assembled by the resistance movement.

Hezbollah plans to send more drones over Israel in the future, he added, adding that the operation shows the resistance movement is ready to defend Lebanon.

The resistance leader further dismissed Western accusations of Hezbollah’s intervention in the Syrian unrest, describing the allegation as “sheer lie.”

“Hezbollah has not fought alongside Syrian forces…. It is not true that Hezbollah is going to take some land from Syria,” Nasrallah stated.

Hezbollah’s leader also rejected allegations that Abu Abbas was the movement’s commander in Syria, and condemned insurgents in Syria for threatening Lebanon.

“Threatening Hezbollah is of no use,” he emphasized.

  1. Did Nasrallah just make more trouble for Iran?
    I wonder if these drones are for surveillance or if they are able to attack people, like US’s drone assassinations?

    Wow, this could be a game changer. And what can the rogue entity do about it, they trespass Lebanon’s air space and Lebanon’s border at will.

    • The “rogue entity” has and will, most probably, continue to blow these drones out of the air…

  2. the IAF couldn’t even detect it for 3 hours and when they did it was an electro optical system that saw it fly near DIMONA. And the israeli pilot hit the drone on his SECOND shot israel in the next war is null and void we should see if the bastard state applies the samson option.

    • Naeem, no one will be left once the Samson option is deployed — that’s the whole point, if the whiny, over indulged zionist Israelis don’t have their own way then they commit suicide & take the whole world with them.

      The US & world leaders must start to give consequences (such as no more gifts of financial & military aid until the warmongers join the human race & obey international law) if they sincerely want to see changes. Why would these self-entitled, avaricious people make peace when there is still land to steal and people to oppress?

      They could start by stating their borders, signing the treaties on curbing nuclear proliferation, and tearing down that abominable apartheid wall. Most people don’t even realise that the ‘fence’ is so huge that vehicles can drive on top of it. Of course the Israelis do whatever they want as they’ve shown contempt for international law (Mavi Marmara springs to mind as well as the ’08-’09 massacre of 1400 Gazans)

      The zionist experiment is a failure the only remaining questions is how much more blood will be shed in this 20th century colonial land grab.
