Hezbollah ‘Blows Up Backbone’ Of Israel’s Drone Fleet; Hermes 450 ‘Shot Down’ Near Lebanese Border
Lebanese militant group Hezbollah claimed it had shot down a deadly Israeli drone. Hezbollah said they successfully brought down an Hermes 450 on November 18. A video purportedly showing the Israeli drone being downed has also surfaced. Israel has not officially responded to Hezbollah’s claim, but the IDF mentioned that a military drone had experienced an emergency landing in northern Israel. This drone is often referred to as the “backbone” of Israel’s military drone fleet.
