Israel Fires Patriot Missile at Drone Coming From Syria

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman leads a faction meeting of his Yisrael Beytenu party in the Knesset

The Israeli leader has met with Putin numerous times since Russia's military intervention in Syria began three years ago.

Israel held out the prospect on Tuesday of eventual contacts with Syria under President Bashar al-Assad, in a nod to his regime-consolidating advances in a seven-year-old civil war that Israeli officials had initially predicted would topple him.

He said the UAV had been tracked long before it entered Israel, flying through both Jordanian and Syrian air space.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu traveled to Moscow Wednesday to communicate Israel's security concerns in Syria and Lebanon to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The military issued a statement warning that it "will not allow any violation of Israeli airspace and will act against any attempt to hurt its civilians".

Agents learned he had purchased a "last-minute" round-trip airline ticket for China on July 7 and arrested Zhang at the airport. During this period, Zhang took circuit boards and a Linux server from the self-driving auto hardware labs.

Israel worries Assad could let his Iranian and Hezbollah reinforcements entrench near Israeli lines or that Syrian forces may defy a 1974 Golan demilitarization. "Obviously, our focus is on Syria and Iran".

The Israeli army said the unmanned aerial vehicle was intercepted by the missile after infiltrating 10 kilometers Israeli territory, and was shot down over the Sea of Galilee.

Netanyahu called the meeting "substantive", noting the importance of preventing misunderstandings before they occur rather than afterward. Russian Federation has previously told Israel they don't have the capability of doing so, and that the Iranian presence is up to Syria.

Iran is backing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the war, as is Russian Federation.

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".
