The drone, operated by Hamas militants, was identified immediately after takeoff from Gaza and was under constant IAF surveillance.
– The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit reported, “The IDF will not allow any airspace violation and will act resolutely against any such attempt.”
The Israeli Defense Forces on Thursday intercepted a Hamas operated drone launched from the Gaza Strip.
According to a statement from the army, the drone was shot down over the Mediterranean sea by an Israeli air force jet and crashed into the water, preventing infiltration into Israeli airspace.
“The IDF will not allow any violation of airspace and will act resolutely against any such attempt,” the IDF spokesperson said.
Israel has intercepted several unmanned aircraft launched from the coastal enclave in recent years.
