Israel has said that it has shot down an spy drone operated by Hezbollah militant group on the Israeli bordrer with Syria, the Israeli Defense Forces said.

“The drone took off from a Damascus military airport and was on a surveillance mission near Israel's border. He said Israel decided to shoot it down after it entered the demilitarized zone between Syria and the Israeli-controlled side of the Golan. Fighter jets were scrambled but did not attack the aircraft, and instead a single Patriot missile shot it down,” Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, an Israeli military spokesman was quoted as saying by Bloomberg Tuesday.

Conricus further said that Israel will defend its borders and will not allow any violation of the country’s sovereignty. Israel will not allow Iranian forces, Hezabolla or any militia approach the borders.
