BEIRUT/JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri said two Israeli drones which crashed in a suburb of Beirut dominated by the Iranian-backed Hezbollah were designed to stir up regional tensions. One drone fell and second exploded before dawn and caused some damage to Hezbollah’s media center in the southern Dahiyeh suburbs, a Hezbollah official told Reuters, in the first such incident since the two sides waged war in 2006. “The new aggression…constitutes a threat to regional stability and an attempt to push the situation toward further tension,” Hariri said in a statement from his office.
