Nasrallah claimed the drone "flew over sensitive installations" in Israel before being shot down near the Dimona nuclear facility.

Nasrallah said the drone was only a "small part of our capabilities" and claimed the intrusion into Israeli airspace was "not the first time and will not be the last."

Since 2004 Hizballah has been trying to send unmanned aircraft into Israel.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke about the downing of the drone just before Nasrallah's interview aired.

Netanyahu accused Hizballah of sending the drone into Israeli airspace.

Netanyahu said, "We are acting with determination to protect our borders."
