 Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri said on Sunday, August 25th that the fall of two Israeli drones in Beirut was a threat to regional stability that heightened tensions, describing it as an open attack on the country's sovereignty, according to Reuters.

Harari remarked he was in consultations with President Michel Aoun on what next steps would be undertaken over what he called the "new aggression". He said there was also a heavy presence of planes in the sky over the capital and its suburbs, his office said in a statement.
