Overnight Sunday, Israeli Air Force fighter jets intercepted a drone on its way towards Israel from the east, the IDF said.

“The vehicle was being monitored by IDF forces, did not pose a threat and no alerts were activated in accordance with policy,” the military said, adding that there were no casualties or damage.

Iran and its proxies fired 170 one-way attack drones at Israel during their massive drone and missile assault on Saturday night.
