BEIRUT: The Lebanese Forces Friday said guards at Samir Geagea’s residence recently detected renewed aerial activity by an “unknown aircraft” which the party said resembled an unmanned aerial vehicle.
"The unknown aircraft returned a few days ago at 4 a.m. and flew at a low altitude above the headquarters of the Lebanese Forces and residence of Samir Geagea in Maarab,” an LF statement said.
“In addition to its familiar sound, the guards then saw it with the naked eye, that it was white in color and the closest thing it resembled was a drone,”” it added.
Earlier this month, the LF said a drone conducted flights over Maarab for a period of two weeks.
In April 2012, Geagea said he survived an assassination attempt when shots were fired at his residence.
Israel flies drones over Lebanese territories on a daily basis, in violation of U.N. Security Council Resolution 1701. Hezbollah revealed last year it has a drone program after it flew a UAV over the Jewish State.
