Israel shoots down drone over northern border

It's All to Play for in Syria and Russia Is Winning

IDF Spokesman Ronen Manelis stated that the IDF identified the Iranian-made drone, operated by the Hezbollah terror group, taking off from the worldwide airport in Damascus.

Israel used a Patriot missile to take down a Hezbollah drone that attempted to infiltrate its airspace in the Golan Heights Monday, according to news reports. When the Air Force's air defense control center identified the drone entering the demilitarized zone on the Golan, approximately at 1:30 pm local time (6:30 am EST), the IDF made a decision to shoot it down. "We will respond to every action very clearly and we will act to prevent any such attempts". "This is proof of the IDF and the defense establishment's readiness".

The incident came hours before Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was due to address the U.N. General Assembly and cite Israeli concerns about an entrenchment in Syria of Iranian and Hezbollah forces that have been helping Damascus beat back Islamist-led rebels.

It is not verified whether the Iranian drone was armed with missiles. The military claimed it was Iranian and operated by the Lebanese militants Hezbollah who are fighting with the Syrian regime.

The Patriot interceptor missile was launched from a military installation in northern Israel, near the city of Safed. He has repeatedly warned that Israel will not accept a military presence by Iran or any of its Shiite allies in the Syrian border area near Israel. But it has carried out dozens of airstrikes on alleged arms shipments bound for Hezbollah.

Rather than use its resources to improve Iranian lives, its oil profits go to fund Hezbollah and other terrorists that kill innocent muslims and attack their peaceful Arab and Israeli neighbors.
