The Israeli military shot down a Hezbollah drone that crossed into Israel, the IDF said on Tuesday.

"The drone was monitored by our soldiers throughout the incident," the military added in a statement.

Incursions by Hezbollah drones into Israel are reported every few months.

In August, Israel shot down a Hezbollah drone that flew into Israeli territory following an unprecedented exchange of fire between Israel and Hezbollah a few days prior.

In response to the fire fight, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah emphasized that it was "a dangerous development that had not happened in 15 years" and warned that his organization "could attack deep into the Galilee" region of northern Israel.

Hezbollah has similarly shot down Israeli drones that have entered Lebanese airspace, most recently in September when the group announced it downed an Israeli drone on the outskirts of the village of Yater in southern Lebanon.
