Hezbollah ISIS

The Hezbollah flag.

Hezbollah said it has used a drone to strike an ISIS position along the Lebanon-Syria border, in a first-of-its-kind public declaration by the Lebanese terror group.

In video footage released by the Hezbollah-controlled Al-Mayadeen satellite network, which appears to be filmed from the drone, two types of munitions are shown, including one with a tail fin, dropping to the ground and exploding on their targets.

An official within the military alliance fighting with the Syrian government told Reuters that it was the first time Hezbollah has publicly declared its use of drone weapons.

Hezbollah, the Lebanese Army and the Syrian Army have recently launched separate campaigns to root out ISIS along the border region. Any joint Lebanese-Syrian operation involving Hezbollah forces is politically sensitive due to support the Lebanese Army receives from the U.S. and other Western countries.
