IDF Shoots at Drone from Syria

I've Been Thinking:
Earlier this morning Israel launched a Patriot anti-missile salvo at a drone that was infiltrating northern Israel from Syria.
The trail of the Patriot was filmed by numerous people in the Safed area.
The drone was flying from the Syrian controlled area of the Golan Heights into Israel. These drones are large and are used for two purposes - primarily for reconnaissance but also for attack. This drone, and others like it, is part of a Syrian/Iranian system patrolling the skies and gathering information.
The Patriot is a US weapon that Israel purchased in order to bolster their defense against missiles, just like this drone, entering their airspace.
On Nov 17, 2017 Israel shot down a drone in a similar fashion.
Earlier today the Patriot missed its target, but despite that, the drone changed course and returned to base.
Israel must make certain that their airspace is not breached. The information Iran and Syria could garner from aerial photos could be devastating to Israel’s security.
