IDF's Patriot intercepts apparent Hezbollah drone from Syria

Haaretz reports that Israel's Air Force shot down the Iranian-made drone with a Patriot missile over the Golan Heights.

The Iranian-built drone was used by Hezbollah to collect intelligence, Manelis said, adding that fighter jets were also scrambled but did not fire on the drone which fell in the area of the Syrian town of Quneitra.

Israel seized 1,200sq/km of the Golan Heights from Syria in the Six-Day War of 1967 and later annexed it in a move never recognised by the worldwide community.

Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman responded to the incident saying that the interception testifies to the preparedness of the IDF and the defense establishment.

Israel's multi-tier missile defense system includes the Arrow, created to intercept long-range ballistic missiles in the stratosphere with an eye on Iran, and Iron Dome, which defends against short-range rockets from the Gaza Strip.
