Drones that fell in Beirut carried explosives: Hezbollah

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Lebanon’s Hezbollah said that two Israeli drones which crashed in Beirut’s southern suburbs on Sunday were carrying explosives.

The Iran-backed movement said in a statement late on Monday that experts examined the first drone. The suburbs “were subjected to an attack by rigged drones”, with the first one failing to cause a blast and the second exploding, it said.

After the two drones crashed on Sunday, Hezbollah’s leader warned Israeli soldiers at the border to await a response.
