IDF says it downed suspected Hezbollah drone

The army says that the Patriot missile it fired in the Golan Heights succeeded in bringing down what appears to be a Hezbollah drone.

The unmanned aircraft was attempting to cross into Israeli airspace, it says.

“The IDF will not allow any breach or attempted breach by Iranian terror groups, Hezbollah or global jihad militias of the Golan Heights border,” it says in a statement.

“We will respond to any such action in a direct and clear manner and we will act to prevent any further attempts,” the statement adds.
