The Israel Defense Forces says it has just intercepted a drone that was flown into Israeli airspace from the Gaza Strip.

The IDF says air defense soldiers shot down the small aircraft.

The IDF says the aircraft was not a small, quadcopter model like those used by civilians, but a larger unmanned aerial vehicle.

It is not immediately clear if it was armed, the military says.
