The Israel Defense Forces says it intercepted one of its own unmanned aerial vehicles over the Lower Galilee, after it was identified as having a technical malfunction.

“The launch [of the interceptor missile] was carried out in a controlled manner and there is no fear of a security incident,” the IDF says.

The incident set off sirens in Bu’eine Nujeidat, a local council west of Tiberias.
