BEIRUT (Reuters) – The Lebanese army said it opened fire at two of three Israeli drones that breached Lebanese airspace on Wednesday evening in the south of the country near the Israeli border, and all three returned to Israeli airspace.

They first entered Lebanese airspace at 19:35 and returned to Israel after shots were fired, the army statement said. A second drone returned to Israel without being fired at. The army fired at a third one which also returned back to Israel, it said.
