JERUSALEM - The Israeli military says it has shot down an unmanned aircraft sent by the Hezbollah group into Israeli skies.
Military officials said the aircraft was downed Thursday off the Israeli coast in Israeli airspace near the northern city of Haifa.
It is the second known instance in which the Lebanese militant group, a bitter Israeli enemy, has sent a drone into Israeli airspace. Last October, the Israeli air force shot down an unmanned aircraft in a similar incident.
Israel and Hezbollah fought a monthlong war in 2006 that ended in a stalemate.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has recently warned that Hezbollah might try to take advantage of the instability in neighboring Syria to obtain what he calls game-changing weapons.
