Lebanese army says one Israeli drone fell, another exploded in Beirut overnight

BEIRUT (Reuters) - The Lebanese army said on Sunday that one Israeli drone fell and another exploded in the southern suburbs of the capital Beirut at 02:30 am local time (2330 GMT), causing only material damage.

“The army arrived immediately and cordoned off the area where the two drones fell,” the army statement said.

Hezbollah had said an Israeli drone fell in and a second one exploded near the ground early on Sunday, damaging Hezbollah’s media centre in the Dahiyeh suburbs of Beirut.
