IDF intercepts own drone over Galilee amid technical malfunction

Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.

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.
