MONTREAL — A Quebec fashion designer and his partner say they were victims of a homophobic attack after they were allegedly beaten outside a bar in the province’s Charlevoix region.Markantoine Lynch-Boisvert says he and Alex James Taboureau were leaving a bar in La Malbaie late Friday night when a man began directing homophobic insults their way.He said they tried to leave but were confronted and later pursued by the man, who allegedly headbutted Lynch-Boisvert in the face while two of his friends attacked his partner.Quebec provincial police confirm they responded to a call in La Malbaie Friday night and have opened an investigation into the incident.Lynch-Boisvert says his injuries include three facial fractures, while Taboureau is recovering from bruising and a minor concussion.Numerous politicians including Quebec Premier Francois Legault and Montreal Mayor Valerie Plante have taken to social media to denounce the alleged attack.The Canadian Press
Tom FennarioAPTN NewsLeah Unaluk made history this year.The 35 year old became the first Inuk in in her community of Puvirnituq ,QC to become a court clerk.“It’s easier for Inuit to have someone, an Inuk who can speak to them if they don’t understand,” said UnalukUnaluk does double duty, also serving as a translator for Quebec’s travelling court when it comes to her community.But according to testimony heard Friday at the Quebec Inquiry into Relations with Indigenous Peoples and Certain Public Services in Kuujjuaraapik, Nunavik, Inuit defendants may have translation during trial, but they are sorely lacking it beforehand and afterwards.“The defence lawyers don’t have interpreters with them when they have to meet with their clients, and that’s just when there’s the communication break downs, just before the court starts,” testified Phoebe Atagotaaluk, justice committee coordinator for Inukjuak, Quebec.Justice committees serve as a kind of liaison between Inuit communities and Quebec’s travelling court that passes through their villages. The Quebec inquiry heard testimony from Atagotaaluk and two justice committee coordinators.During their presentation they laid out several major concerns, including what they say is excessive over policing of Inuit in Nunavik.“In the past one of our supervisors at the Makivik Justice department was trying to plead with the crowns and the judges that to always give the condition to not consume alcohol or drugs, it was just setting people up to breach. The condition to maintain peace and good order, should be enough,” testified Martin Scott, administrator of the Justice Committee of Aupaluk, Qc.In 2015, APTN News spent a week with Quebec’s travelling court.Out of the 181 charges on the docket, 31 percent were “breaches of conditions”.Earlier this week Johnny Anautak of Akulivik, QC testified that police in Nunavik purposefully target Inuit with “no drinking” conditions in order to get travel perks that come with accompanying detainees down south.“When they have conditions right away they arrest them cause they want to send them down south, so they can have a flight , free flight,” said Anautak. The justice committee coordinators also testified that the constant travel back and forth between Nunavik communities for trial and detention centres in the south causes emotional stress and eats into resources.Resources that could go into more permanent funding for alternative measures to keep Inuit from reoffending.“If it’s women, we ask them if they can do sewing and give back to the community, that’s the first that we ask if they can sew parkas or snow pants and for men if they can go out hunting and share with elders,” explained Atagotaaluk. Leah Unaluk credits her community’s justice committee with helping her turn her life around.Four years ago a drunk driving charge landed her prison time.But a reduced sentence and support from the committee once home led her to where she is today.“I was going through tough times, but now I’m so proud of myself for working as a court clerk and interpreter,” said UnalukAs for addressing problems in the justice system up north, her solution is straight forward.“I would like to encourage Inuit to become workers of the court because we would understand each other more, and help our people,” said Unaluk.email@example.com@tfennario
BAKU: Venezuela has suspended its oil exports to India and views Russia and China as its main export destinations, the Azeri energy ministry said on Tuesday, citing Venezuela’s oil minister. The Azeri ministry issued the statement on Tuesday following talks in Baku between Azerbaijan’s energy minister and Venezuelan oil minister and president of state-run oil company PDVSA, Manuel Quevedo. “At the meeting… Quevedo said in order to prevent a sharp reduction, various measures are being implemented and diversification of the export market is underway,” the statement said. “Russia and China are seen as the main destinations because of the suspension of oil exports to India,” the statement said. The Indian market has been crucial for Venezuela’s economy because it has historically been the second-largest cash-paying customer for the OPEC country’s crude, behind the United States. Earlier this year, the United States imposed heavy sanctions on Venezuela’s oil industry and has pressed India to stop buying Venezuelan oil. OPEC and other oil ministers met in Baku in talks over the weekend that ended on Monday.
23 May 2008The United Nations refugee agency said today that it remains “deeply concerned” over the recent xenophobic violence in South Africa, which has claimed dozens of lives and has displaced some 17,000 people, including refugees and asylum-seekers. Many of those who have been attacked in the past two weeks – a large percentage of them being Zimbabweans – had originally moved to South Africa to escape persecution in their own countries. “We are present on the ground and have been assessing the needs at sites near police stations where the displaced have gathered,” Jennifer Pagonis, spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), said today. On Wednesday, the agency distributed blankets and mats to survivors, with additional supplies being released from emergency stocks yesterday. Ms. Pagonis said UNHCR is in close contact with the South African Government regarding further assistance. Among the displaced Zimbabweans are many asylum-seekers who urgently require both assistance and protection, UNHCR said. “While thousands of Mozambicans are reportedly streaming home, many Zimbabweans cannot consider returning home due to the well-known situation in their country,” Ms. Pagonis observed. Since many of the Zimbabweans need international protection, she called for those seeking asylum to have access to national asylum procedures in South Africa or other nations. “Zimbabweans who are refugees should be recognized as such,” she noted.” In the past, UNHCR has encouraged South Africa to halt the deportation of Zimbabweans to their country, and it is calling on South Africa to grant them, on an exceptional basis, the possibility to stay in the country. “Recent events in South Africa, as well as in their own country, are once again highlighting just how vulnerable this group is, making acting on UNHCR’s appeal even more urgent today,” Ms. Pagonis said. The agency pledged its continued support to the Government in boosting the national asylum system and in protecting refugees and asylum-seekers currently in South Africa, numbering over 125,000.
Van Wagners Beach near Hutches is a place many visit to relax and catch some sun. But some of our viewers contacted us, asking ‘what are Pan Am Games visitors going to think of the state of the beach?’ Because for the past few days, it’s not a destination some Hamiltonians are proud of.Cindy Csordas reports on what is being done to clean up the mess.A beach is usually a place where families like to visit to enjoy the environment. But not at Van Wagners Beach near Hutches in the last few days. “If I come here with my mom and brother and I play in the sand and find garbage, I don’t want to play in the sand anymore” says little Makenna Langford who was visiting the beach today. “If it was cleaner I’d be building sandcastles and having fun”Sandcastles could’ve been built with some interesting accessories today. Straws, bottle caps, juiceboxes, cigarette butts and a deflated balloon? How about a sock? That’s just some of the litter that’s scattered along the shoreline, not far from several garbage cans.Some of the parents at the beach today say they’re worried about letting their children walk bare feet or play in the sand because of all the garbage everywhere. Others worry about what kind of image a dirty beach will leave with Pan Am Games tourists who may visit here. The Hamilton Conservation authority owns the land. They say the windy storm at the end of June is responsible for scattering garbage all over several Hamilton beaches. The Conservation Authority was busy cleaning up Fifty Points Beach today and says Van Wagners Beach is next on their list. They say Van Wagners Beach is a difficult on to clean because they can’t use equipment, due to the rock and the texture of the sand. All of the garbage needs to be picked up by hand.
TSX slightly higher on China growth worries, escalating Russia/Ukraine tensions TORONTO – The Toronto stock market closed with a small gain Tuesday amid concerns about China’s growth and worsening tensions between Ukraine and Russia.The S&P/TSX composite index climbed 19.49 points to 14,303.92.The Canadian dollar was down 0.2 of a cent to 91.1 cents US a day ahead of the Bank of Canada’s latest interest rate announcement. It is universally expected that the bank won’t hike its key rate from one per cent, where it has been since September, 2010.New York indexes closed higher at the end of a volatile session as the Dow Jones industrials gained 89.32 points to 16,262.56, the Nasdaq was 11.47 points higher at 4,034.16 and the S&P 500 index was ahead 12.37 points at 1,842.98.Worries about the Ukraine crisis deepened after the government’s first military action since acting President Oleksandr Turchynov announced an “anti-terrorist operation” against separatists who have seized control of numerous buildings in the east of the country. The government said troops restored control over a small airport in eastern Ukraine that had been occupied by pro-Russian militiamen.Concerns about China also weighed as data showed a tightening of credit growth. Money supply growth was up just 12.1 per cent year over year in March, the slowest pace in 17 years.And that slowing in credit growth raised fresh worries about economic growth in the world’s second-biggest economy. There are worries that gross domestic product growth may fall below seven per cent in the current year, a full 0.5 of a percentage point below the government’s target. Official growth figures for China will be released Wednesday.“Clearly the growth is slowing, officially guiding at 7.5 per cent, but the leadership has said the growth will not come at the expense of reform,” said John Stephenson, portfolio manager at First Asset Funds.“So, to the extent that reform does occur, and it’s badly needed, that would be a good thing. So, China is making the right moves, but so much is predicated on them getting things exactly right.”Markets found some buoyancy from well-received earnings reports.Coca-Cola beat expectations as the beverage giant said adjusted per-share earnings fell to 44 cents while net operating revenues fell to $10.58 billion. Analysts polled by FactSet had expected earnings of 44 cents on revenue of $10.55 billion and Coca-Cola shares rose 3.74 per cent.Also, drug company Johnson&Johnson reported earnings per share of $1.54, seven cents better than analyst forecasts while revenue of $18.115 billion beat forecasts of $17.996 billion. It shares ran up 2.12 per cent.Tech stocks led TSX advancers, up 0.58 per cent.In the U.S., Intel and Yahoo reported earnings after the close.Intel ran up 2.73 per cent in after-hours trading as earnings per share came in at 38 cents, a penny more than expectations. Revenue grew to US$12.8 billion from $12.6 billion because of solid demand for tablet processors and its data centre services, although it narrowly missed expectations of $12.81 billion.A survey by FactSet says analysts were expecting earnings of 37 cents per share on revenue of $12.8 billion.And Yahoo’s earnings per share ex-items were 38 cents, a penny higher than analyst forecasts and its shares edged up 0.4 per cent in after-hours trading. Net earnings were US$312 million, or 29 cents per share compared with $390 million or 35 cents per share a year earlier.The results highlighted the contrasting performances of Yahoo’s investment portfolio and the company’s business of running ad-supported online services. Yahoo Inc. is making most of its money from its stakes in two Asian Internet companies — China’s Alibaba Group and Yahoo Japan.The rising U.S. dollar helped depress commodity prices. A stronger greenback makes it more expensive for holders of other currencies to buy oil and metals which are dollar-denominated.May crude on the New York Mercantile Exchange fell 30 cents to US$103.75 a barrel, but the energy sector was ahead 0.15 per cent.The gold sector was the major decliner, down 2.15 per cent as June bullion fell $27.20 to US$1,300.30 an ounce.The base metals sector was down 1.3 per cent as May copper fell six cents to US$2.98 a pound. by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted Apr 15, 2014 6:17 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email
Sony : le PSN enfin de retour au JaponSi les Européens ont depuis plusieurs semaines à nouveau accès au PlayStation Network (PSN), suspendu après un vaste piratage, les Japonais devront encore attendre jusqu’au mercredi 6 juillet pour accéder aux services dont ils sont privés depuis le mois d’avril.Le 6 juillet, le PSN devrait être enfin totalement rétabli, partout dans le monde. Victime d’une attaque informatique de grande ampleur au mois d’avril, Sony avait suspendu les services de son portail afin d’en revoir la sécurité. Si le PSN et Qriocity, le service de Sony proposant des vidéos et de la musique en ligne, sont rétablis depuis plus d’un mois aux Etats-Unis et en Europe, ce n’est pas le cas au Japon.À lire aussiAu Japon, des colonies de termites prospèrent sans le moindre mâleLe ministre du commerce, de l’économie et de l’industrie japonais a ordonné à Sony de revoir sérieusement sa sécurité. Il semble que ce soit désormais chose faite puisque toutes les fonctionnalités du PSN seront accessibles mercredi dans le pays du soleil levant. Pour compenser la longue suspension de ses services en ligne, Sony promet des lots de consolation à ses utilisateurs japonais, comme il l’avait fait dans les autres pays. Les clients nippons devraient ainsi se voir offrir des téléchargements gratuits, et un mois de souscription gratuite au PSN.Les données de quelque 77 millions de comptes du portail PlayStation Network avaient été volées en avril. Le mois suivant, des informations sur 25 millions d’utilisateurs du réseau de jeux Sony Online Entertainment PC étaient à leur tour dérobés.Le 4 juillet 2011 à 19:01 • Emmanuel Perrin
Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The 46th running of Alaska’s famed Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race kicks off Saturday amid the most turbulent year ever for the annual long-distance contest that spans mountain ranges, the frozen Yukon River and dangerous sea ice along the Bering Sea coast. The consultant called on organizers to develop a plan to rebuild trust with mushers and sponsors. The Iditarod said it couldn’t prove Dallas Seavey administered the drugs to his dogs, and didn’t punish him. Since then, the rules have been changed to hold mushers liable for any positive drug test unless they can show something beyond their control happened. More recently, a group of mushers named the Iditarod Official Finishers Club has called for the resignation of the Iditarod board president and other board leaders it says have conflicts. It also has criticized the board in its handling of the doping scandal. Hooley, the race CEO, said conversations are underway to replace some members. “You can count on from me, and many mushers that I would bet my life on, that we will continue to do the best we can for our dogs and the event,” he said. Four-time winner Jeff King said he sees room for improvements after the doping controversy caught organizers “flat-footed,” and he is ready for a significant change in the board leadership. But he doesn’t believe the Iditarod is nearing the end of its lifespan, and laughs when asked about it. Iditarod CEO Stan Hooley acknowledged organizers have weathered a dark time but disagreed the race faces an uncertain future. “There’s been a lot of craziness, but it’s the people who are insane,” he said. “The dogs aren’t crazy.” There’s one bright spot for organizers: Optimal trail conditions. A warming climate in recent years has caused significant disruptions, including the rerouting of the 2017 and 2015 races hundreds of miles to the north because of dangerous conditions. As always, the race will begin with the customary ceremonial start in Anchorage, but the competitive portion beginning Sunday north of Anchorage will follow a southern route for the first time since 2013. Traditionally, southern and northern routes are alternated every year. Mitch Seavey, who is seeking a fourth Iditarod championship, said his son is the happiest he’s seen him in months, and is reveling in heavy snow in Norway. The elder Seavey said he himself is not going to be distracted by “all the noise,” but is focusing on his dogs and the race ahead. The deaths of five dogs connected to last year’s race also played a role in increasing pressure from animal rights activists. Three of the deaths occurred during the race, and two dogs died after being dropped from the competition. One got loose from a handler and was hit by a car, and another died as it was flown to Anchorage, likely from hyperthermia. The race went without dog deaths in several recent years. Race officials blame activists for using manipulative information to pressure corporate sponsors like Wells Fargo, a longtime backer that severed ties to the Iditarod last spring. Dallas Seavey is sitting out this year’s race in protest over the handling of the doping investigation. Instead, he is in Norway to participate in another sled dog race, the Finnmarkslopet, which begins March 9. The Iditarod’s governing board disclosed in October that four dogs belonging to four-time winner Dallas Seavey tested positive for a banned substance, the opioid painkiller tramadol, after his second-place finish last March behind his father, Mitch Seavey. It faced criticism for not releasing the information sooner. Among the multiple problems: a champion’s dog doping scandal, the loss of major sponsor Wells Fargo, discontent among mushers and escalating pressure from animal rights activists, who say the dogs are run to death or left with serious injuries. The Iditarod has had its ups and downs over the decades, but the current storm of troubles is raising questions about the future of the 1,000-mile (1,600-kilometer) race that for many symbolizes the contest between mortals and Alaska’s unforgiving nature. Leo Rasmussen, one of the race’s founders, predicted the Iditarod is heading for extinction within the next few years, given an “extreme lack of organization” from its leadership. By PETA’s count, the dog deaths bring the total to more than 150 over the Iditarod’s history. Race officials dispute those numbers but have not provided their own despite numerous requests from The Associated Press. The younger Seavey, who denied administering tramadol to his dogs, also came under scrutiny when the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, a longtime race critic, complained about a kennel operated by the musher based on allegations of sick, injured or dead dogs. Local investigators said they found no evidence of animal cruelty in the matter. “You can only burn so many stumps, you know, and you’re done,” he says. PETA says that for the first time, about a dozen of its members will protest the race in person at the ceremonial and competitive starts and at the finish line, in the remote coastal town of Nome. They plan to bring five headstones with the names of the dogs that died in 2017. “There’s always going to be an Iditarod,” he said. “I consider this more of a growing process than anything else.” “If the human participants want to race to Nome, have at it,” PETA spokeswoman Colleen O’Brien said. “But don’t force these dogs to run until their paws are bloody and they die on the trail.” “Both of these partner groups are on the verge of withdrawing their support for this race as a result of their distrust in this board,” the report states. The late timing of the Iditarod Trail Committee’s disclosure of the doping matter prompted the race’s major sponsors to commission an independent consultant late last year. The consultant’s report said the committee took months to release the information, causing concerns among many about a lack of transparency.
The Air Force is considering four locations to host the first Reserve-led KC-46A Pegasus unit — Tinker Air Force Base, Okla.; Seymour-Johnson AFB, N.C.; Westover Air Reserve Base, Mass.; and Grissom ARB, Ind.Officials on Tuesday said the service’s next generation aerial tanker KC-46As will begin arriving at the first Air Force Reserve-led global mobility wing in fiscal 2019.Air Mobility Command and Air Force Reserve Command now will conduct site surveys of each candidate. Officials will grade each location against operational requirements, potential impacts to existing missions, housing, infrastructure and manpower, according to a press release. They also will develop cost estimates to bed down the KC-46A at each candidate base.After briefing the Air Force secretary and chief of staff, the service will select preferred and reasonable alternatives for the operating location. The Air Force plans to announce those alternatives and begin the environmental impact analysis process this summer.“We look forward to the next phase of the process when preferred and reasonable alternatives are announced and our candidate base communities have an opportunity to participate by providing input for the environmental impact analysis,” said Mark Pohlmeier, acting deputy assistant secretary for installations.Tanker units under consideration that are not selected for the KC-46A “will continue to fly their current aircraft for the foreseeable future,” said Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Welsh. Dan Cohen AUTHOR
Facebook’s messaging app for kids. Jason Cipriani/CNET Facebook said Monday that a “technical error” allowed thousands of kids who used the company’s messaging app for children to join group chats with people who weren’t approved by their parents.The app, called Messenger Kids, lets children between 6 and 12 years old send messages and video chat with family members and friends who their parents accept.For example, a girl who uses the app can join group chats if she was invited by a friend approved by her parents. Because of the flaw, these group chats could also include users who weren’t approved by the girl’s parents. Facebook said, though, that members of these group chats were approved by the friend’s parents.”We recently notified some parents of Messenger Kids account users about a technical error that we detected affecting a small number of group chats,” a Facebook’s spokesman said in a statement. “We turned off the affected chats and provided parents with additional resources on Messenger Kids and online safety.”The spokesman said that Facebook is still looking into how the error happened but it has fixed the issue. He couldn’t answer questions about how the social media giant found out about the error.The Verge, which previously reported about this flaw, said it’s “unclear how long the bug was present in the app.”The app has been controversial since its launch in December 2017. Child advocacy groups have repeatedly urged Facebook to shut down the app, arguing it violates a federal law aimed at protecting a child’s online privacy.Facebook hasn’t shared how many people use Messenger Kids. In December, market research firm Sensor Tower estimated the app has been installed by 2.8 million App Store and Google Play users in the US, Canada, Mexico, Thailand and Peru.

With the change of season, it’s time to dig into food items that are not served throughout the year. Try gajar pak, bathua ka saag or gucchi ki galawat that are mostly prepared with ingredients only available during winter, say experts: * Bathua ka saag: Bathua (Chenopodium album) is rich in iron and calcium, low on fat and tasty too. This season is all about sweets and fattening food, hence bathua is a good way to add the right balance. Also, this is the best season to consume as Bathua is abundantly found during winter. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf* Green garlic sabzi: Another ingredient that is available in winter is the green garlic. Whilst the most common thing one can do is make chutney but you can also prepare green garlic sabzi. It has a lovely and balanced flavour which is noticeable but not overpowering.* Undhiyu: For most Gujaratis, winter isn’t winter without the steaming bowls of undhiyu on their dining table. ‘Undhu’ which means upside down in Gujarati is a mixed vegetable dish that is a regional specialty of Surat. Definitely a must try in this season. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive* Gajar pak: Winter is here, and it’s the season for vibrant red carrots. There’s nothing better than making some gajar halwa. Apart from that, you can even try gajar pak. It is same as halwa but presented in the form of a barfi.* Daulat ki chaat: Daulat ki chaat is frothy and foamy treat which is a part of every feast and celebration. This cottony pile of foam is made out of thick creamy milk and is topped off with sugar, cardamom, almond flakes and pistachios. * Shorba-e-Gulzar soup: It is a tomato shorba prepared with fresh tomatoes and roasted cumin seeds. Murgh badami shorba is an extract of chicken with garlic and Indian spices with almonds. Shorba is traditionally prepared by simmering of meat or vegetables and flavoured with aromatic traditional Indian spices and herbs.* Gucchi ki galawat: It is a mouth-melting patty of wild mushrooms infused with smoked spices – perfect for vegetarians. Galauti kebab, which is a soft succulent patty of lamb blended with exotic spices, is a trademark of Lucknow. * Nalli nihari: Lamb shanks simmered overnight in a silken golden gravy with special Indian spices is again a Lucknowi special.
This is often the case with lesbians, as well as bisexual, trans, and queer women. Speaking from experience, living in Los Angeles, a city with a vibrant and fun LGBTQ community, most spaces here are dominated by men. It can definitely feel alienating and frustrating.There are places out there catering to women within the LGBTQ community — it’s just a matter of finding them. Or at least keeping this list handy.1. La Mutinerie, ParisA packed night at the bar | Photo: Facebook/La Mutinerie, Photo by Gaelle MatataWhat better place to have a night out than the City of Love?

Pink Hole, SeoulThough not the biggest lesbian bar in South Korea (that would be Labris), Pink Hole (originally Pink Button) has its own character and charm to appeal to crowds. It’s one of the city’s first gay bars and the first to organize lesbian-only events.Its interior features a VIP room, a powder room, and laser lights to make the dance floor that much cooler.12. My Sister’s Room, AtlantaThe outside of My Sister’s Room | Photo: Facebook/My Sister’s Room – MSRAtlanta isn’t just a bustling city in the South and the setting of the first two seasons of Queer Eye, it also has a fabulous lesbian bar.Self-described as the city’s ‘number-one lesbian bar’, this space lesbian-owned.

Air Canada introduced its Economy Basic fare in February 2018. Share
New Year’s resolution: don’t spend another year in a kitchen you don’t like 4 sleep positions for men and what they mean Sponsored Stories JERUSALEM (AP) – Israel shot down a drone Thursday as it approached its northern coast from neighboring Lebanon, raising suspicions that the Hezbollah militant group was behind the infiltration attempt.Hezbollah denied involvement, but the incident was likely to heighten Israeli concerns that the Shiite militant group is trying to take advantage of the unrest in neighboring Syria to strengthen its capabilities. Comments Share Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Arizona families, Arizona farms: A legacy of tradition embracing animal care and comfort through modern technology Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Top Stories Israel’s military has also stepped up its air surveillance over Lebanon. On Thursday morning, Israeli warplanes flew over the Christian town of Jezzine and the highlands of the Iqlim al-Tuffah province, a Hezbollah stronghold in southern Lebanon, the country’s state-run National News Agency reported.The Lebanese army also reported Israeli jets violated Lebanese airspace on Tuesday and Wednesday.Some analysts said Hezbollah might be trying to divert attention from its involvement in the increasingly sectarian Syrian civil war. The Shiite militants have openly sided with the regime of Bashar Assad in its battle against mostly Sunni rebels.Jonathan Spyer, senior research fellow at the Herzliya Interdisciplinary Center near Tel Aviv, said Hezbollah was facing discontent among its Shiite base in Lebanon, and more broadly among other Arabs for its participation in the Syrian conflict.He said the group was likely trying to show that its real enemy was the Jewish state, in an effort to shore up support.Spyer said sending a drone appeared to be a “fairly calibrated provocation,” intended to be low key enough not to provoke an Israeli military response in Lebanon. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who was in a helicopter in northern Israel at the time of the incident, said he viewed it with “utmost gravity.”Israeli military spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said the unmanned aircraft was detected as it was flying over Lebanon and tracked as it approached Israeli airspace.He said the military waited for the aircraft to enter Israeli airspace, confirmed it was “enemy,” and then an F-16 warplane shot it down, smashing its wreckage into the sea about five miles (eight kilometers) off the northern port of Haifa. Lerner said Israeli naval forces were searching for the remains of the aircraft.He said it still was not clear who sent the drone, noting it flew over Lebanese airspace, but that it could have originated from somewhere else.Other military officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not permitted to talk to the media, said they believed it was an Iranian-manufactured aircraft sent by Hezbollah. The Lebanese group sent a drone into Israeli airspace last October that Israel also shot down.Officials said Netanyahu was informed of the unfolding incident as he was flying north for a cultural event with members of the country’s Druse minority. They said his helicopter briefly landed while the drone was intercepted then continued on its way.

All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) “On my way here in the helicopter, I was told that there is an infiltration attempt of a drone inside the skies of Israel,” Netanyahu said in the northern Arab-Israeli town of Daliyat al-Karmel. “We will continue to do everything necessary to safeguard the security of Israel’s citizens.”Despite the denial, the incident was likely to raise already heightened tensions between Israel and Hezbollah, a bitter enemy that battled Israel to a stalemate during a monthlong war in 2006.A senior Lebanese security official, who spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations, said Lebanon had no information on Thursday’s incident.When Israeli military shot down a Hezbollah drone on Oct. 6, it took days for Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah to confirm it. He warned in a speech that it wouldn’t be the last operation by the group. He said the sophisticated aircraft was made in Iran and assembled by Hezbollah.Netanyahu repeatedly has warned that Hezbollah might try to take advantage of the instability in neighboring Syria, a key Hezbollah ally, to obtain what he calls game-changing weapons.Israel has all but confirmed that it carried out an airstrike in Syria earlier this year that destroyed a shipment of sophisticated anti-aircraft missiles bound for Hezbollah.
