JERUSALEM, Israel – Lebanese President Michel Aoun is threatening to retaliate against the Jewish state after Israeli drones crashed in the capital city of Beirut on Sunday. He also condemned Israel for reportedly attacking a Palestinian terror group along the Syrian-Lebanese border.

“What happened resembles a declaration of war that entitles us to resort to our right to defend our sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity,” Aoun told U.N. Special Coordinator for Lebanon Jan Kubis on Monday.

“I have repeatedly said before that Lebanon will not fire a single shot from its border unless it is in self-defense,” Aoun added. “What happened yesterday allows us to exercise this right.”

An-Nahar reports that Israel struck a military base used by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command near the Lebanese village of Qusaya in the eastern Bekaa Valley.

According to the report, the strikes damaged buildings but caused no casualties.

The strikes came days after the Lebanese military said two IDF drones crashed in Beirut, escalating tensions between Israel and the Iranian-backed Hezbollah terror group.

Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah in Lebanon, warned Israel that an attack is coming.

“I tell the Israeli army on the border: wait for our response, which may take place at any time on the border and beyond the border. Be prepared and wait for us,” Nasrallah said.
