JERUSALEM – Israel’s military said it had fired a missile at a drone that approached from Syria on Friday, and a witness on the Syrian side of the frontier said the aircraft had been brought down.

The incident occurred two days after an Israeli Patriot missile downed what the Israeli military said was a pilotless and apparently unarmed Syrian reconnaissance aircraft near the Sea of Galilee in northern Israel.

“A Patriot missile of the IDF’s (Israel Defence Forces)aerial defense system was launched toward a Syrian UAV flying over the demilitarized zone. The UAV was most likely intercepted,” the military said in a statement.
