Army confirms shooting down cruise missile

The Israel Defense Forces says it shot down a cruise missile “launched from the east,” appearing to confirm reports that the projectile was fired from Iraq.

The army has described attacks from Iraq in the past as “from the east.”

The military also says a “suspicious aerial target” that crossed from Lebanon was shot down by the Iron Dome air defense system a short while ago, after alarms sounded in the northern town of Margaliot.

There are no injuries or damage caused in the attack.
