Israel shoots down Syrian drone approaching Golan Heights

Israeli forces are seen near a border fence between the Israeli-occupied side of the Golan Heights and Syria

New details have emerged regarding the incident this morning in which Israel intercepted a Syrian UAV: The IDF reportedly checked in with the Russians before activating the Patriot defense system to shoot down the drone.

The military confirmed that the unmanned aerial vehicle was not an attack drone, and that it would investigate whether the drone had ties to Iran or Hezbollah.

Earlier that month, the Syrian army launched an interceptor missile at Israeli Air Force reconnaissance aircraft, which the IDF says were flying over Lebanon.

Disneyland shuts down cooling towers after reported disease outbreak
Of the 12 cases of Legionnaire's disease that emerged in September, nine were among people who visited Disneyland in September. That outbreak, which sickened 182 and resulted in 29 deaths, was traced to the convention hotel's air conditioning system.

However, the military did not provide any further information regarding what kind of UAV was used. We will not allow the establishment of the Shiite axis in Syria as a base for forward action. "Earlier I told you that it was produced in Russian Federation, but additional checks showed that we can not confirm this information", Conricus said.

An Israeli Patriot missile intercepted a drone from Syria that approached the Jewish state's disputed border with Syria near the Golan Heights on Saturday. Israel and Syria are still technically at war, though the armistice line on the Golan Heights had remained largely quiet for decades until civil war erupted in Syria in 2011.

"We hold the Syrian regime responsible for any firing or breach of sovereignty and call on it to hold back all players active in its territory", Lieberman said in a statement. Syria demands its return.
