Former Lebanese PM: Hizbullah Drone Sent over Israel at Iran's Behest

(Daily Star-Lebanon) Former Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora said that a Hizbullah-dispatched reconnaissance plane that flew over Israel was sent at Iran's behest, he said in a statement. "We are proud of any triumph against the Israeli enemy. However, Hizbullah Chief... Nasrallah hasn't asked the Lebanese if they are prepared to become engaged in such a battle or into a war against Israel." Siniora also said the drone was a clear violation of UN Resolution 1701 which calls on the Lebanese and Israeli sides to maintain calm on the border.
