IAF strikes border army posts in Syria after drone infiltrated 10 km into Israel yesterday

The Israeli Air Force carried out airstrikes in southern Syria shortly after midnight on Wednesday, targeting 3 military positions in the Quneitra region near the border, hours after a Syrian drone was shot down by the IDF when it entered Israeli airspace.

The drone was flown into Israel from Syria penetrated 10 kilometers into Israel and activated sirens in the southern Golan Heights and northern Jordan Valley regions.

It was taken down by a Patriot battery, sending fragments of the aircraft crashing to the earth south of the Sea of Galilee.

The incident took place as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited Moscow to stress to Russian President Vladimir Putin that Israel will not tolerate an Iranian military presence in Syria.

To rule out a Russian link, the IDF waited about 15 minutes before downing the drone.

According to the military, shortly after 15:15 yesterday the drone entered Israeli airspace from Syria through the demilitarized zone between the two countries, after first passing over Jordan. Some 16 minutes later, a Patriot anti-aircraft missile was fired at the UAV, shooting it down over the Sea of Galilee, IDF spokesperson Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus told reporters.

Before targeting the drone, the military also scrambled a number of aircraft as a defensive measure.

The military quickly recovered the fragments of the drone in an area south of the lake. It did not appear to have been armed and was more likely sent into Israel on a reconnaissance mission.
