A short while ago the IDF shot down an unmanned ultra light plane flying from the Gaza Strip into Israel.

A Patriot battery identified the incursion and downed the aircraft over the Ashdod beach. It is unclear if the aircraft was sent in for terror reasons or for reconnaissance purposes.

This is the first Patriot interception in over 20 years.

Overnight, 19 rockets were fired at Israel from Gaza, two of them causing damage to property.
