Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah on Tuesday released video footage of Israel’s Haifa Port captured by a surveillance UAV. The port is one of Israel’s most important commercial shipping gateways.

The incident took place last week, and the Israel Defense Forces made the decision not to intercept the drone as it did not pose a threat, and due to the fear that interception fragments could harm civilians, according to Israeli media.

Following a two-day lull in hostilities earlier this week, Hezbollah resumed its attacks on Tuesday afternoon, launching three “suspicious aerial targets” toward towns in the Upper Galilee, the IDF said.

Since Oct. 8, Hezbollah has fired more than 5,000 rockets, anti-tank missiles and suicide drones at Israeli border communities.
