Lebanese forces cordon off S. Beirut area after drone explosion

Hizballah reported that two drones came down over south Beirut early Sunday, Aug. 25 – one exploding on the roof of its media center and the second coming down 45 minutes later. This was confirmed by Lebanese officials. Hizballah spokesman Muhammed Afif said that their leader Hassan Nasrallah would speak Sunday afternoon and disclose the harsh payback facing Israel for the attack which, he said, was caused by a booby-trapped drone hitting its media center in the Shiite district of Dahya.

The Beirut attack took place just hours after the Israeli air force destroyed several Iranian “killer drones” in Damascus to thwart and attack on Israel that was judged “imminent.”.

Hizballah’s statement and confirmation by Russian sources of the type of drone operation suggest to DEBKAfile’s military sources that the first drone may have been an Israeli Harpy, which is designed to cruise over its target until ordered to conduct a kamikaze strike. The second drone that hovered overhead for 45 minutes appears to have been monitoring the operation and broadcasting video images of its outcome. before effecting self-destruct.

      Seems odd that Israel would be looking to attack a media center.

      Why do so now, when they have to know that Hezbollah is going to hit back starting the cycle that will likely result in a major conflict?

      So unless this report is incorrect my question is why does the mad man Netanyahu need to start a war now?

      Is he really that far behind in the polls that he would risk war to stay in power and out of prison where he deserves to be.

        Tommy, the answer is obvious, There’s a direct connection between the attempted and foil attack by the Iranians, a couple of days ago, and Hezbollah’s communication center in Beirut.

      Really? For damage to a roof? There is a long list of attacks they haven’t hit back yet for, because they don’t want to be pulverized.

        Do roofs have communications dish/antenna?

        Bleachers the world over have observers smarter than players/managers…

    REFLEXIONEMOS … El chiíta debe ser menos estúpido y sin sentido de la realidad porque Israel puede destruir Beirut en un par de horas … Los artefactos atómicos ni siquiera serán necesarios … Hay material “convencional” para endulzar a la rata chiíta quien controla la capital. Muy pronto, el gobierno libanés se verá obligado a deshacerse de las ratas …
    La comunidad internacional ya está al tanto de un “espectacular fin de semana de Fiesta” en el G-7 preparado por el gran payaso del negocio inmobiliario …
    No te rías … porque, después de todo, se trata de tierra … El terrorista ABU MAZEN miente …
    No habrá millones de mártires para un asalto a Jerusalén … Desde el punto de vista urbano, no hay lugar para tanta gente, es imposible; ni siquiera hay espacio para tanto terrorista en el “paraíso” que el viejo terrorista manipulador les ha prometido …

    Message is clear, Beruit will pay for the sins of Hezy, not some farm house in the south. Lebanese failure to remove will cause Beruit to need a rebuild and I am fine with it. Last month airport, ports, media center….financial centers next.

    The questions are what was the “Media Center” really and was it a successful strike.

    That makes more sense if that’s correct, it seemed idiot that Netanyahu would be looking to start a war with Hezbollah now.

    I don’t see any political advantage at this time just lots of problems.
