The IDF fired a Patriot missile from the same area two months ago, following the discovery of a UAV nearing Israel’s airspace. The aircraft, who had been launched from Damascus and operated by Lebanon-based terror group Hezbollah, was destroyed by the Patriot and fell within Syria.

Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman referred to the interception by saying that “the State of Israel views with great severity any violation of sovereignty and will respond with force to any provocation.

“We view the Syrian regime as responsible for all firing and violation of sovereignty, We will not allow the establishment of the Shiite axis in Syria as a base for forward action,” he added.
