The Israel Defense Forces on Thursday shot down a drone crossing over the border from Lebanon, the military announced.
The unmanned aerial vehicle was monitored by air defense systems throughout its flight and intercepted over the border community of Moshav Zar’it.
“The IDF will continue to act to prevent any violation of the sovereignty of the State of Israel,” the military said.
The incident came a day after an IDF unmanned aerial vehicle came under light-arms fire from Syria.
The UAV was conducting routine reconnaissance close to the border on the Golan Heights. It was not damaged and was able to complete its mission, the IDF said.
Last month, the Israel Air Force downed an unidentified drone after it crossed from Syria into Israeli territory.
Helicopters and fighter jets were scrambled to intercept the craft, and it was brought down over open territory in northern Israel.
The drone did not pose a threat and alarms were not activated in nearby communities.
