The entity responsible for sending a small unmanned aerial vehicle over southern Israel failed in both of its missions: retrieving intelligence data, and harming the image of Israeli air defense, senior Defense Ministry official Amos Gilad told Israel Radio on Tuesday.

Gilad said that the UAV was identified over a long distance and, due to operational concerns, was only shot down by the IDF when it reached an open area.

Gilad added that Israel was still unsure who had sent the aircraft.
