Israeli air force shoots down drone aircraft - Yahoo! News

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - The Israeli air force shot down a drone after it crossed into southern Israel on Saturday, the military said, but it remained unclear where the aircraft had come from.

The drone was first spotted above the Mediterranean Sea in the area of the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip to the west of Israel, said military spokeswoman Avital Leibovich. Once it crossed into Israeli air space, it was escorted by air force jets.

At about 10 a.m. (0700 GMT), after it traveled east some 35 miles across Israel's southern Negev desert, the drone was shot down above a forest in an unpopulated area near the border with the occupied West Bank, she said.

"We are considering this interception successful," Leibovich said. Soldiers were searching the area where the drone was downed to locate and identify the drone, the military said

What's your problem, Pbel ?

A problem? It is clear the drone was not American, that’s why 6the IDF waited so long in shooting it down. ASSUMING that it was not American then the probability is Iranian...A war between Israel and Iran will drag America into another war it desperately needs to avoid financial catastrophe.

That's all.

If it *was* Iranian - they had no business intruding on Israeli air space, so that makes the Iranians the aggressors.

I doubt it is. And are you telling us Israel hasn't had any drones over Iran?

We are in total agreement...America like it or not will be dragged into war #3 with an Islamic country...

America ought to make it clear to Israel and Iran, that we have NO military involvement in this. Our interests are in keeping the oil flowing, Israel can protect its-self.

She didn't say occupied West Bank, of course. Creative news much?

Cool. They have every right to send drones into Israel. Israel violates their airspace thousands of times
Israel protects good lebanese from hezballa, and the latter have every right to get a whupping, of course.

When Lebanon proposed rebuilding a synagogue that was damaged during the war Hezbollah voted in favor of the reconstruction.

As they should, of course. They need all the training sites, weapons storage depots and firing platforms they can muster.
