A drone approaching Israeli airspace from Lebanon was intercepted by the Iron Dome air defense system earlier today, the military says.

The Israel Defense Forces says the drone was tracked throughout its flight by Air Force systems, and it was intercepted “deep within Lebanon,” without ever penetrating Israeli airspace.

Separately, the IDF says a number of anti-tank guided missiles were fired at an area near the northern community of Avivim, and rockets were fired at the Malkia area on the Lebanon border.

No injuries have been caused in the attacks, and the IDF says troops are responding with artillery shelling toward the sources of the fire.
