The drones that Hezbollah launched toward the Karish gas rig last week were Iranian unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), Defense Minister Benny Gantz confirmed. “Hezbollah used UAVs made in Iran in their operation against the Karish,” he said in a briefing to military reporters. “It should be said that Hezbollah carries out missions for Iran, and its weapons are weapons made in Iran whether it is manufactured there or the knowledge acquired by them.”

The IDF shot down three UAVs launched on Saturday by Hezbollah toward the Karish rig, which is situated within Israel’s economic waters but disputed by Lebanon. One of the three UAVs was shot down by an F-16, and the other two were downed by the naval Barak 1 Medium-Range Surface-to-Air Missile system on the INS Eilat, marking the first time the system was used against aerial threats.
