A drone of unknown origin struck an open area in Jordan, close to the Israeli border near Ramon Airport, authorities say.

A spokesperson for the Eilat Municipality says the drone struck an area around 200 meters from the border. The Israel Airports Authority says there was no strike at Ramon Airport itself.

The IDF has not yet commented on the incident.

The incident comes amid several drone attacks by an Iran-backed militia in Syria. Early Monday, a drone launched from Iraq struck an Israeli Navy base in Eilat, causing damage.
