24fr4

The IDF has fired a Patriot missile that allegedly destroyed a Syrian drone over the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights after an incident near Damascus International Airport.

Confirming that the Patriot missile successfully intercepted the unmanned aerial vehicle over the Golan Heights, the IDF stressed that the UAV was under Israeli Air Force’s “full surveillance” during the brief time it was in “Israeli airspace.”
Initially the IDF said that it shot down “a target” or an “unidentified aircraft” over the Golan Heights, but it was not immediately clear what kind of target that was. The army later confirmed that it was an apparent Syrian drone.
