The Lebanese army opened fire at an Israeli drone in south Lebanon on Wednesday, two Lebanese security sources and local media said.

A security source told Reuters that troops fired shots from M16 assault rifles. Lebanon's President Michel Aoun had said on Monday his country had a right to defend itself after two Israeli drones crashed in Beirut suburbs on Sunday.

The Israeli military spokeswoman said "we are checking the report".
