The Israel Defense Forces says it shot down a “suspicious” aircraft flying over the Gaza Strip.
The UAV was “monitored throughout the incident” and did not cross into Israeli airspace, the IDF says, adding Iron Dome interceptor missiles were fired at the device over Gaza.
Earlier today the army fired Iron Dome missiles at an Israeli drone over the northern border with Lebanon due to mistaken identification. Those missiles missed their target.
Palestinian media reports say an explosion was heard in southern Gaza. Footage from the area appears to show an interception, although it is not clear. pic.twitter.com/Pu3fKqwKlN
