Hamas on Saturday declared a state of high alert among members of its military wing following an escalation between Syrian and Israeli forces on the northern border.
“The al-Qassam brigades announce high alert among members in order to defend against any Zionist aggression,” the statement read.
On early Saturday morning the Israeli Air Force shot down an Iranian drone that entered the country through Jordanian air space.
In response, the IAF struck Iranian targets in Syria.
