BEIRUT — An Israeli drone violated Lebanese airspace at 1:00 a.m. Wednesday in Marjayoun, Nabatieh governorate, dropping a smoke bomb near a group of Lebanese people, the state-run National News Agency reported.
The smoke bomb landed near a group of men who were in a cafe in al-Khiyam-Kfar Kala, Marjayoun, across the border from the Metula Israeli settlement, according to the NNA. No injuries were reported.
A spokesperson for the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon, which monitors the border, told L'Orient Today that UNIFIL is aware of the incident and is "looking into it."
A spokesperson for the Lebanese Army was not immediately available for comment.
Israeli military forces violate Lebanese air, land and sea space on a near-daily basis.
Last week, an Israeli military vehicle triggered a landmine along the Lebanese border near Aita Shaab in South Lebanon, causing at least two injuries.
Unexploded landmines were left behind in some parts of Lebanon after the 2006 war. The landmines continue to claim victims, usually Lebanese residents.
