Israel downed a drone over the occupied Golan Heights today, the army said, amid mounting tension on the UN-patrolled armistice line with Syria on the strategic plateau.
Air defences “successfully intercepted an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that breached Israel airspace above the border with Syria,” an army statement said. Heavy fighting between Syrian government troops and opposition forces flowed into the buffer zone separating Syrian and Israeli-occupied territory at the weekend.
Dozens of Filipino UN peacekeepers escaped the hot zone overnight after rebels rammed their Golan Heights outpost with armed trucks, the Philippine military said.
