The Israeli Defense Force has reportedly intercepted an unmanned aerial vehicle that attempted to infiltrate Israeli airspace in the Golan Heights.
“Moments ago, the IDF used a Patriot Missile to intercept a UAV that attempted to infiltrate Israeli airspace in the Golan Heights,” the IDF spokesperson tweeted about the incident on the microblogging website.
The Israel Defense Forces’ Patriot missile defense system shot down a drone above the Golan Heights Saturday after the unmanned aircraft approached the Israeli border from Syria, Times of Israel reported.
The IDF later concluded that the aircraft belonged to Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime. It did not enter Israeli territory.
