Israel's Patriot Missile System Downs Drone on Syrian Border

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman on Saturday stressed that the State of Israel will respond with force to any violation of its sovereignty, after the IDFs' Patriot missile defense system shot down a drone above the Golan Heights, near the border with Syria.

"It was a reconnaissance UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) and not an attack UAV and we are checking whether there is any connection to Iran and Hizballah", Conricus said.

According to THR , Brunton's story was corroborated by four of his friends who recalled Brunton telling them about the incident. Brunton says he told Takei "No, I don't want to do this, " and pushed him off, to which Takei responded, "OK, fine".

The drone was downed with a Patriot interceptor missile over the Golan demilitarized zone that has separated Israeli and Syrian forces since the ceasefire deal that followed their 1973 war. According to Israel, the aerial vehicle was manufactured by Iran and operated by its ally, Hezbollah, a Lebanese Shiite militia.

The defense minister added that the Assad regime would be held accountable for any such violation, and that Israel would not permit the establishment of a Shi'ite axis in Syria to become a base for attacks.
