Lebanon’s National News Agency reported that eye witnesses noticed an unidentified object falling from the sky in the Baalbek town of Younin. The object, which was in flames, led to a fire in the area prompting Civil Defense teams and security agencies to the scene.

It was later confirmed that the object was a UAV.

Security agencies cordoned off the area, adding that the aircraft was transported from the site and that the crater it left was filled in.

Earlier on Saturday, the Lebanese Armed Forces announced that an Israeli drone infiltrated Lebanon’s airspace on Friday morning.
