Report: Israeli warplane drops object near south Lebanon town
Lebanon's official news agency says security forces unable to approach location since area is littered with unexploded cluster bombs it says Israel launched in 2006.
Israeli warplanes dropped an unidentified object in southern Lebanon on Tuesday, Lebanon's official news agency reported, adding that Lebanese security forces were yet unable to ascertain what the nature of the item.
According to the Lebanese report, the Israel Air Force jets dropped the object in a ravine running between the towns of Houla and Tallouse.
The Lebanon National Army was unable to inspect the object since, the report said, the area was littered with unexploded cluster bombs allegedly dropped there by the Israeli army during the Second Lebanon War.

Last month, Lebanese security official said that the Lebanese army dismantled four rockets in southern Lebanon that were set to be fired into Israel.
An Israeli military spokesperson said that the presence of weapons in southern Lebanon was "a concern" and a clear violation of UN Resolution 1701, which ended the 2006 war between Israel and the Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah.
The IDF added that the Israeli military held the Lebanese government and army responsible for implementing the resolution, which calls for all armed militias in Lebanon, including Hezbollah, to be disarmed.
