Possible cruise missile fired from Iraq set off drone alarms in Golan — reports

Reports in Hebrew press claim a projectile that set off drone infiltration alarms across the southern Golan earlier this morning was shot down after being fired from Iraq.

According to the Ynet news site, the alarms were triggered by a cruise missile and not a UAV, as initially suspected.

There is no claim of responsibility from Iran-backed militias in Iraq, which have claimed a number of drone attacks on Eilat in the last several months.

An Israel Defense Forces spokesperson declines to comment on the report or provide any update regarding the apparent attack.
