BEIRUT (AP) — The militant Lebanese Hezbollah group has denied sending a drone that was shot down by Israel.

The group's Al Manar TV made the announcement Thursday through a one line statement flashed as an urgent news bar on its screen.

An Israeli warplane shot down a drone approaching the country coast from Lebanon, smashing its wreckage into the sea off the northern city of Haifa Thursday.

Suspicion immediately fell on Hezbollah, which sent a similar drone in October and vowed to send more.
