Occupation forces try to "intercept" their own drone
Al Mayadeen's correspondent stated that "the occupation retracted two stories within minutes."
Israeli media reported today that the sirens sounded in the Galilee, claiming that this was “due to the entry of a drone from Lebanese territory,” and that “Iron Dome intercepted the plane and shot it down.”
However, it later emerged, according to the Israeli media, that “Due to a misidentification, the air defense soldiers launched interceptors and as a result an alert was activated."
Al Mayadeen's correspondent stated that "the occupation retracted two stories within minutes," noting that the occupation fired two interceptors at its own drone, leading to the sirens sounding and the summoning of the Israeli air force.

Our correspondent added that "what happened today indicates the failure of the military sergeant in the occupation army."
The IOF said that the air force has opened an investigation into the incident.
On Tuesday, an IOF statement said that their forces detected and shot down a Hezbollah drone after successfully crossing from the Lebanese territory to the Palestinian territories.
In February of this year, the Israeli occupation admitted its failure to bring down the Hassan UAV launched by the Islamic Resistance in Lebanon towards the occupied territories of Palestine.
The resistance confirmed that the plane flew 40 minutes on a reconnaissance mission, stretching for a length of 70 km in Palestine, adding that it returned safely despite all the enemy's multiple and successive attempts to bring it down.
