Powerful Lebanese Shiite movement Hezbollah denied on Thursday that it had sent a drone over Israel, hours after the Israeli air force said it shot down an unmanned aircraft off the country's northern coast.
"Hezbollah denies sending any unmanned drone towards occupied Palestine," the movement's television channel Al-Manar said, without elaborating.
Israel's deputy defence minister earlier put the blame squarely on Hezbollah.
Hezbollah has previously claimed responsibility for drone infiltrations, most recently on October 7.
