A Hezbollah MP dismissed a media report claiming that the militant group possesses an airstrip in northeast Lebanon used to land its arsenal of drones.The comments came after an article in Jane's Defense Weekly said it discovered what it believed to be an airstrip near the Bekaa Valley town of Hermel built by Hezbollah to fly its drones.The report, authored by Nicholas Blanford, had suggested Thursday that the location contained an airstrip that Hezbollah built for its drones between Feb. 27, 2013 and June 19, 2014 .Okay, Hezbollah is present in Syria and fights against Israel, and it might use these drones in both countries to support its military operations".
