MGN: Israel

(CNN) — Israel has shot down an unmanned aerial vehicle that entered Israeli airspace near the Syrian border, the Israel Defense Forces said Sunday.

The UAV was destroyed by a Patriot surface-to-air missile, IDF spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said.

“In spite of the IDF’s sensitivity to recent occurrences in the proximity of the border, we have repeatedly stated that we will respond to any breach of Israel’s sovereignty and will continue to act to maintain safety and security to the civilians of the State of Israel,” Lerner added.
