Israeli forces shot down a drone belonging to Hezbollah which crossed over from Lebanon into Israeli territory, Israel's army said Tuesday.

The drone was monitored by air control units throughout its flight, the army said.

Last month, Israeli artillery forces shelled targets in Lebanon, a military spokesperson said, marking a rare flareup on Israel's relatively quiet northern border with Lebanon.

The strike at "the source of the launch" came hours after a rocket launched toward Israel fell in an open area shortly after midnight.
