The drone took off from a Damascus military airport before crossing into the Israeli-controlled part of the Golan Heights, Israeli military spokesman Jonathan Conricus told the AFP news agency.
The system was also used in July 2016 when two Patriot missiles were fired at a suspicious drone that crossed into Israeli airspace from Syria.
IDF Spokesman Ronen Manelis stated that the IDF identified the Iranian-made drone, operated by the Hezbollah terror group, taking off from the global airport in Damascus.
The IDF will act severely and attack against any such actions, said Manelis, adding: "We will respond to every such attempt". The IDF recently completed a large-scale drill in the country's north, with tens of thousands of soldiers drilling for a hypothetical war with Iranian-backed Hezbollah. Both missed their target and the unmanned aircraft returned to Syria.
