Lebanese TV and Al Jazeera are reporting that Hizb’Allah has downed an Israeli F-16 Air Force plane. The report is unconfirmed and Israeli officials are currently denying the report.
Let’s hope it is false, and if not, pray for the pilot…
Update - it is now being more widely reported by foreign press, includding BBC and Sky News.
I just saw that the Israeli army has said it was not a plane that was shot down, rather a "Meichal Kruzim" which roughly translates as a utensil for making announcements. I guess they use it to drop propoganda flyers in lebanese territory and it was destroyed..
