Admitting to a move aimed at provoking Israel, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah claimed responsibility for his group launching the drone aircraft that was recently shot down in Israeli airspace, the Associated Press reported.

Hezbollah had been the leading suspect behind the drone, which was unarmed and brought down by an Israeli warplane jet in the Hebron Hills, not far from Israel’s nuclear reactor site at Dimona.

“It is our natural right to send other reconnaissance flights inside occupied Palestine … This is not the first time and will not be the last. We can reach any place we want,” Nasrallah said in a televised address.

The drone incident has generated a war of words between Iran, its proxy Hezbollah and Israel. Earlier in the week, Iran’s Revolutionary Guards Corp claimed that the drone successfully photographed the Dimona reactor. Another report from the Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth said that the Israeli F-16 missed the drone on its first missile attempt.

    Chaya thank you for confirming my point about Lubavitchers calling the cops on other Jews. I know that you were serious when you just issued that threat. Well, at least I am not afraid to give my full name and subject myself to threats from narrow minded people llke yourself. You are so smitten with who you think that Lubavitchers are that you don’t even see what is going on in front of your own nose. And crazy enough to insist that I am from Boro Park without even knowing. It is for people like you that the expression “don’t believe the hype” came into being.

      Who appointed you Judge and Jury for world Jewry? American Jews, Russian Jews, Hasidim?

      And I don’t think you’re from Boro Park, Kulak. I think you’re from Kuland.

    Sheik Nasrallah? did he just crawl out of the cave he has been hiding in for years? This is the first I heard of him in a long while. Maybe he is trying to improve his image by sending only a reconsaissance drone over Israel in the hope that he can now see more daylight. the air inside that cave must have been getting a little musty. Let him stretch his legs a bit and walk all around. Perhaps he’ll feel better. But it wouldn’t be wise to accept too many rides.

      Maybe you should crawl out of your cave in the hope that you can see more daylight. The air in your cave must be getting a little musty. Stretch out your legs a bit and walk around. But stay in Booroo Pahk. If I see you in Crown Heights I’ll call the cops.
