Israel: IDF shoot down Hezballah UAV coming in from Syria.

(Tel Aviv) Israel shot down a pilotless plane over the Golan Heights today which it says was most likely an Iranian-built aircraft on a reconnaissance mission for the Lebanese Hizbollah terrorist group on Israel’s frontier with Syria. The incident transpired  hours before Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was due to address the UN General Assembly and cite Israeli concerns about an entrenchment in Syria of Iranian and Hizbollah forces that have been helping Damascus beat back hardliners-led rebels.

The drone was launched from an air base near Damascus and was downed with a Patriot interceptor missile over the Golan demilitarised zone that separates Israeli from Syria.
