UN calls for restraint after Lebanon reports drone attack
Spokesman Stephane Dujarric said the UN was unable to confirm the reports about Sunday's incident, the latest in a series of attacks reported in the region in recent days.
"The United Nations calls on the parties to exercise maximum restraint both in action and rhetoric," he said. "It is imperative for all to avoid an escalation and abide by relevant Security Council resolutions."
UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres also received a letter from the Lebanese government on the same subject, Dujarric said.
Before dawn on Sunday, a reconnaissance drone crashed in a Hizballah bastion south of Beirut and a second exploded in the air, the Lebanese army said.
Hizballah and the army pointed the finger at Israel, which has not commented.
