A former air force chief has warned that Israel no longer enjoys air superiority over neighbouring Lebanon, citing the shooting down of a number of drones.

The Kan broadcaster reported that Israel’s intelligence-gathering capabilities had been limited after a decision was made to scale back the number of surveillance flights over Lebanon.

In February, Hassan Nasrallah — leader of the Iran-backed Hezbollah movement in Lebanon — said that Israeli flights over Lebanon had been “greatly reduced” as a result of improvements in Hezbollah’s air defences.

That same month Israel also reportedly downed a drone piloted by Hezbollah over northern Israel.
