  • IDF Patriot missile shoots down Syrian drone over Sea of Galilee

"At the meeting [with Putin], the prime minister will make clear that Israel will not tolerate military entrenchment by Iran or its proxies anywhere in Syria, and that Syria must abide meticulously by the 1974 separation agreement", an official Israeli statement said.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told Russian Federation on Wednesday that its ally Syrian President Bashar al-Assad would be safe from Israel, but Moscow should encourage Iranian forces quit Syria, a senior Israeli official said.

"A few hours ago, a Syrian aircraft infiltrated Israel's airspace", he said.

"In recent weeks we are prepared for the possibility of Israeli sovereignty being violated as a result of the fighting in Syria", Israeli Defense Forces spokesperson Ronen Manelis said.

There were no reports of injuries or damage over the drone's incursion.

According to Haaretz, the drone was tracked after it went about 6 miles into Israeli territory.

"We scrambled four fighter jets that were on standby for similar missions as well as two attack helicopters", he said.

On June 24, Israel's military said it launched a Patriot missile at an incoming drone from Syria, which turned away unscathed.

Israel shot down a Syrian drone that penetrated its airspace on Wednesday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, highlighting an escalation of volatility near the frontier which Netanyahu discussed in Moscow with Damascus's biggest ally.

On Tuesday, Netanyahu met with Russian envoys Alexander Lavrentiev and Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Vershinin, in Jerusalem, reiterating again Israel's objection to an Iranian presence in Syria.

Israel has been on high alert as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's forces advance on rebels near the Golan Heights and Jordan.

In the ensuing years, Israel has rarely commented on targeted strikes against Iranian convoys attempting to deliver weapons to Hezbollah in Lebanon or airstrikes against Iranian military bases in Syria.

This is the second time in a month that Israel has intercepted a drone flying in from Syria.

He said the incursion threatened "the safety and security of Israel's northern cities and towns" and added that Israel has "repeatedly warned the Security Council of the destabilizing activities taking place in Syria and the threats they pose to Israel and the Middle East".
