Ynetnews reports: An Israeli Air Force fighter jet shot down an unmanned aircraft of Hamas which was making its way from the Gaza Strip to the Mediterranean on Thursday afternoon.

The drone was shot down before it managed to infiltrate Israel, and fell into the sea after being intercepted. The IDF Spokesperson’s Unit said that “the IDF will not allow any airspace violation and will act resolutely against any such attempt.”

The drone was operated by militants from Hamas’s military wing. It was identified immediately after takeoff and was under IAF surveillance.
