WEST BANK (Dispatches) – The Zionist regime launched its rockets only to discover it was firing at its own drone, the occupying regime’s army confessed on Friday.
Sirens sounded in the Upper Galilee, near the Lebanese border, with residents rushing into shelters.
“Due to an error in identification, the IDF Aerial Defense Array launched interceptors which caused the alarms heard in northern Israel,” the regime’s army said in a statement.
The humiliation for the Zionist regime comes as Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement has flown drones over the occupied territories for reconnaissance missions, and returned the aircraft untouched after completing the mission successfully.
The leader of Hezbollah, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, said last year the resistance movement has developed the capability to make rockets and drones on its own.
Lebanon fought off two wars the Zionist regime in 2000 and 2006. On both occasions, battleground contribution by Hezbollah proved an indispensable asset, forcing the regime’s military into a retreat.
Hezbollah was established following the 1982 invasion and occupation of southern Lebanon. The movement drove out Zionist troops from Lebanon in May 2000.
Since then, the resistance group has grown into a powerful military force, dealing repeated blows to the military, including during a 33-day war in July 2006.
