A drone infiltrated Israeli territory in the Mt. Hermon area close to the border area with Lebanon on Thursday night, the IDF announced on Friday.
The drone's movement was tailed by IDF troops and it was shot down.
"The IDF is highly prepared in the northern arena and will not allow any violation of the sovereignty of the State of Israel," the IDF stated.
An initial investigation suggests that the incident was due to IDF's UAV presence in the vicinity.
The IDF will continue the investigation.
