( The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) shot down a drone in the Golan Heights that had entered Israeli airspace from Syria.

The drone likely belonged to the Syrian military and crossed over the border near the Quneitra crossing between Syria and Israel. It was then shot down with a Patriot missile.

"We have repeatedly stated that we will respond to any breach of Israel's sovereignty and will continue to act to maintain safety and security," IDF spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner told the Associated Press.
