The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) confirmed firing a Patriot missile toward an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle approaching Israel’s Golan Heights from Syria on Sunday.

“Air defense systems as well as detection systems identified the threat in advance…before it crossed into the country,” read a statement released by the IDF’s Spokesperson’s Unit, adding that the military “will not allow a violation of Israel’s aerial sovereignty and will act against any attempt to harm its citizens.” – The Jerusalem Post
