A drone heading toward Israel from the eastern direction was intercepted by an Israeli fighter jet, the military says.

According to the IDF, the drone did not enter Israeli airspace, and therefore sirens did not sound.

Amid the ongoing war, Iran-backed groups in Iraq and Syria have claimed to have launched dozens of drones at Israel, with the IDF reporting downing many of them.
