IDF: Gunfire from Syria aimed at IDF drone operating along border
Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.
The Israel Defense Forces says suspects in Syria opened fire with light arms at a military drone conducting “routine surveillance activity” over the border.
The IDF says the drone finished its activity and landed safely, with no apparent damage caused.
Troops return machine gun fire at the area in southern Syria where the gunfire was detected, the IDF says.
