BEIRUT: An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle belonging to Hezbollah crashed in east Lebanon Saturday afternoon, security sources told The Daily Star.

The UAV, which witnesses said looked like a glowing ball of fire falling to earth, crashed in the Baalbek town of Younin, the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said.

The crash site was soon cordoned off by members of the resistance, who prevented access to the area and later transported the drone off site to an unknown location.

Quoting villagers in the area, Lebanon’s National News Agency reported that an unidentified object crashed in the town.

The object, which was in flames, led to a fire in the area prompting Civil Defense teams and security agencies to the scene.

The state-run agency later reported the object as that of a reconnaissance aircraft of unknown identity.

It said security agencies cordoned off the area, adding that the aircraft was transported from the site and that the crater it left was filled in.
