Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon promised Thursday that Israel would retaliate for the UAV flight into Israeli airspace Thursday, assumed to be a Hizbullah operation.

"There will be an Israeli reaction," said Danon on IDF Radio. "We have seen our ability to deter Hizbullah," he added.

"We still see Hizbullah's leaders hiding in the shelters and not daring to travel around Lebanon," he noted.

Danon said that while Israel would continue to deter Hizbullah, there will probably be similar attempts to enter Israeli airspace on both the northern and southern borders.
