The leader of Lebanese Shia militant movement Hezbollah has said that his group was behind the launch of a drone shot down over Israel last week.
Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah told the movement's al-Manar television network that the drone was made in Iran and had flown over "sensitive sites" in Israel.
Israeli fighter planes shot down the drone north of the Negev desert after it entered from the Mediterranean....
Sheikh Nasrallah said the drone was assembled in Lebanon but made in Iran....
Sheikh Nasrallah said: "A sophisticated reconnaissance aircraft was sent from Lebanese territory... and travelled hundreds of kilometres over the sea before crossing enemy lines and into occupied Palestine."
Correspondents say Sheikh Nasrallah's mention of "sensitive" Israeli sites is an apparent reference to Israel's Dimona nuclear reactor.

Hezbollah is more honest than Stephanie Cutter.
Obviously they back-enginered the lost drone .
I wonder how many “Camel power” it has ( cultural relativity), and whether they got it to run on camel urine ?
Any decent engineer can build a simple drone with off the shelf components for less than the price of most cars. With GPS, satellite up-link, the works.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Either that or GE helps them build them.
