Israeli fighter jets shoot down drone - Telegraph.co.uk
The Israeli military released a 10-second video clip of what it said was the mid-air interception. In the video, a small, unidentified aircraft is seen moments before being destroyed by a missile fired from a fighter jet.
"We are not certain at this point where is the origin of this UAV. However, we are witnessing lately in the region a very big and thriving industry for UAV's and of course we are following those attempts closely," she said.
Ms Leibovich said it was shot down after it travelled east some 35 miles (55 km) across Israel's southern Negev desert.
Soldiers, assisted by helicopters, were searching the area for the remains of the drone, which security sources said most likely did not originate from the Gaza Strip. It was not immediately clear whether it was armed.
Israel's Army Radio reported the drone was not carrying any explosives, and quoting security sources, said it likely came from Lebanon.
On at least one occasion, Iranian-backed Hizbollah, a Shi'ite group in Lebanon, has launched a drone into Israel. In 2010, an Israeli warplane shot down an apparently unmanned balloon in the Negev near the country's Dimona nuclear reactor.
