Syrian drone intercepted near Israeli border actually manufactured in Russian Federation

In a statement, the military said it intercepted the drone above the Golan Heights using a Patriot missile.

The investigation of the incident earlier today (Saturday), in which an unmanned aerial vehicle from Syria was intercepted as it approached Israeli airspace, indicates that the UAV was actually manufactured in Russian Federation. Channel Two news on Motzoei Shabbos reported that the IDF had contacted sources in Russian Federation in order to ascertain that the UAV did not belong to Russian Federation before shooting it down.

"A UAV that approached the Golan Heights border was intercepted by the Patriot system", said the IDF Spokesperson's Unit in a statement.

Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Israel viewed the incident gravely and would respond to any provocation.
