UNIFIL Didn't Detect Crossing of Any Drone

Interim Force in Leb (UNIFIL) on Monday said its radars did not detect the crossing of any surveillance drones from Leb into the Israeli airspace, amid Israeli suspicions that a drone shot down by Israeli warplanes on Saturday over the Negev area could have been sent by Hizbullah.
In an interview with Radio Voice of Leb (93.3), UNIFIL front man Andrea Tenenti said the U.N. peacekeeping force did not witness any event of a drone flying from Leb into the Israeli airspace.
An Israeli military official has told Israeli public radio that the Israeli army dispelled the notion that the drone might have been launched from the Gazoo Strip, and was looking into the possibility that Hizbullah may have dispatched it.
The Ynet news agency said without quoting sources that "Hizbullah launched this drone. It is even possible that Iranians activated its launch and guidance system, and it is apparently of Iranian manufacture."
