IDF intercepts Hezbollah drones heading to gas rig

Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) intercepted three Hezbollah drones over the Mediterranean Sea on Saturday. The drones are believed to belong to Lebanese Hezbollah and were en route to the sea's Karish gas field.

Preliminary investigation showed that unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) did not pose a "threat" until the interception over the Mediterranean Sea, the IDF revealed. The Hezbollah "unusual operation" comes amid the negotiations that are to establish a maritime border between Israel and Lebanon.

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz said that the country is prepared to defend its infrastructure against "any threat," accusing Lebanon of disrupting the talks on the border that is essential to Beirut's economy and citizens.
