Israel’s Patriot Missiles Turn Away Drone From Syria Over Golan

JERUSALEM — Two Patriot missiles turned away a drone shot over the Golan Heights that is believed to have come from Syria, the Israeli military said.

The unmanned aerial vehicle had breached Israel’s airspace in the North late Sunday afternoon, the Israel Defense Forces said. The Patriot missiles failed to intercept the drone, the IDF said.

The Israeli military is conducting a three-day drill in the northern Golan.

Warning sirens sounded in the central Golan before the Patriots were launched. The Air Force sent jets to scan the area following the deployment of the Patriots.
