A Hizballah drone flies over Israel’s Shlomi, is not intercepted

Israeli aircraft were scrambled Wednesday afternoon when a Hizballah drone infiltrated northern Israel over the small town of Shlomi 3 km from the Lebanese border – but did not shoot it down. The intruding drone returned to Lebanon unscathed. The IDF in a laconic communique reported that Israeli forces had spotted the intruding UAV when it flew over Shlomi, northeast of the town of Nahariya, but did not explain why it was not intercepted, or why Shlomi, a small town of 8,000 souls, was not alerted to a Hizballah UAV cruising over their heads. The IDF spokesman also omitted to disclose if the enemy drone was armed.

    Oh for the good old days when the intended target, enemy territory with civilians in , was perfectly appropriate and ethical. Dresden and Tokyo were so nice to bomb, without any general ever being charged with war crimes.
    .
    Maybe Dresdenizing of Gaza should is right for Gaza.
