The drones have become a regular part of modern warfare and Israel in February shot down an Iranian one that infiltrated its airspace.

In September, Israel shot down a Hezbollah surveillance drone that veered too close to the Syrian border with Israel.

The military said the unmanned aircraft was Iranian-made and launched from a Damascus airport before it was shot down near the Israeli-controlled side of the Golan Heights.
