According to the Kan Bet radio station, Hezbollah militants intercepted a civilian drone owned by the Metula city administration.

The drone, acquired about a month ago, was being used to assess damage from rocket attacks on city buildings.

It went missing last Thursday, February 15, shortly after takeoff. Hezbollah militants took control of the drone and redirected it to Lebanese territory.

Kan Bet reported that the stolen drone, valued at over 50 thousand shekels, was purchased through donations.
