A hostile drone that entered Israeli airspace from Lebanon was shot down by air defenses, the IDF says.

Amid the incident, sirens sounded in the Upper Galilee communities of Yanuh-Jat, Klil, Kafr Yasif, Yarka, Abu Snan and Julis.

Shrapnel from the interception landed on a building in Julis, causing minor damage, the military adds.

The incident marks the first rocket or drone alert sirens in the country after an almost 48-hour lull.
