IDF troops shoot down drone launched by Muslim terrorists near the Gaza border

IDF troops shot down a drone launched by Muslim terrorists near the Gaza border on Saturday afternoon.

An IDF statement says the drone was shot down near the security border fence with Gaza. No injuries or damage reported.

Last month,  a drone identified at the unusual altitude of 12,000 feet over Gaza was intercepted by F-15 fighter jets.

The latest escalation on the Gaza border began the last week when an Israeli strike eliminated a top Islamic Jihad terrorist, Baha Abu al-Ata and brought a wave of rocket fire into Israel in response.
