An Israeli fighter jet intercepted on Monday an unidentified aircraft over the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.

The object was identified upon takeoff and followed by control units on the ground until it was shot out of the sky, the Israel Defense Forces said in a statement.

The object did not cross into Israeli territory and did not pose a threat, according to the IDF.

On Sunday, the Israeli Air Force shot down another unidentified aircraft, after it crossed from Syria into Israeli territory.

Helicopters and fighter jets were scrambled to intercept the drone, which was monitored by the IAF, and downed it over open territory in northern Israel.

The aircraft did not pose a threat and alarms were not activated in nearby communities, according to the IDF.

The military is investigating the incident, which comes after a series of air strikes in recent days against Iranian targets in Syria attributed to Israel.

The military also intercepted a Hamas drone over Gaza on March 22.
