IDF Fails to Shoot Down Syrian Drone That Entered Israeli Airspace
JNS.org – Israel fired missiles toward a drone that entered Israeli airspace from Syria on Sunday, according to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).
“Two Patriot air defense missiles were fired towards a drone that infiltrated Israeli airspace in the central Golan Heights. The drone returned to Syria,” the IDF said in a statement.
The missiles were unable to intercept the drone, which led to shrapnel falling in Kibbutz Ayelet Hashahar in the upper Galilee region. A 14-year-old girl was lightly injured and taken to the hospital. Fighter jets were dispatched, but also did not hit the drone. Israel is investigating the incident.
