Tensions mount between Israel-Lebanon after drone strikes

Israeli forces were on high alert Monday (August 26) as tensions mount at the border with Lebanon.

Earlier in the day, Israeli drone strikes hit a military position belonging to an Iranian-backed Palestinian faction.

That took place in Lebanon near the Syrian border.

An official in the Palestinian faction called the strikes an Israeli "provocation".

Those strikes come a day after two drones crashed in a Hezbollah-dominated suburb of Beirut.

The group's leader warned his Iran-backed movement was preparing a response to the attack.

That attack came hours after Israel said it had hit Iranian and Shi'ite forces near the Syrian capital Damascus.

Israel said they were preparing to launch killer drones.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu laid the blame firmly at the door of Iran - accusing them of planning an attack to kill Israelis.

Israel released surveillance footage purporting to show Iranian operatives walking near a site that Israel claims was to be used for drone launches.

As for the attack in Beirut, Israel has not claimed that one.

But Hezbollah say it's the first Israeli attack inside Lebanon since the two sides fought a deadly month-long war in 2006.

For Israelis living near the border - it's business as usual.

With many civilians saying they are constantly on alert anyway.

But Lebanon's president says the drone strikes were like a 'declaration of war'.

Saying his country had a right to defend itself.
