(Communicated by the IDF Spokesman)

This morning an Iranian UAV (unmanned air vehicle) operated by the Hizbullah terror organization infiltrated into Israel over the western Galilee.

This incident is a part of the terrorist activity carried out by the Hizbullah terrorist organization with the support of Iran and Syria and under the auspices of Lebanon, with the aim of targeting Israeli citizens.

This is further evidence of the lack of control of the Lebanese government of activities carried out from within its territory, something which may cause harm to Lebanon and its citizens.

The State of Israel views gravely any infiltration into its sovereign territory from the air, sea or by land, and will act to ensure the security of its citizens.
