Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah reassured on Tuesday that Hezbollah was not behind sending an unmanned aircraft over occupied Palestine, indicating that "because of the sensitive situation in the region, and because it didn’t send the aircraft, Hezbollah instantly issued a precise statement, denying it had sent any unmanned aircraft over occupied Palestine".
Sayyed Nasrallah stressed that "Hezbollah has the courage to bear the responsibility of any action it makes, especially when it is related to the Israeli enemy," adding that "what was said about this drone was not more important or dangerous than Hezbollah's responsibility of Ayyoub drone which flew over Palestine and reached Dimona."
As he clarified he does not deny that an aircraft did enter the occupied territories, his eminence pointed out that "there isn’t any evidence that an aircraft did enter… until this moment, the Israelis have not broadcast a film or images of the wreck of the aircraft they claimed they have downed…"
Sayyed Nasrallah proposed several assumptions about the side behind the drone. He excluded the first assumption which claims that the Iranian Revolutionary Guards sent the drone over "Israel", and dubbed it "unrealistic".
