An Iranian Test?

Here's the story. As much of Israel was enjoying a quiet Shabbat - the IDF was, as it always is, protecting our borders, our skies, our shores. A potential threat was identified - an unmanned drone attempting to enter our air space. Why?

Good question - some sites are saying it was an Iranian test. It could have been. It could have come from Hezbollah - again, with Iranian backing...or from Hamas - again, with Iranian backing. Whatever truth there is will be found; whatever it hoped to accomplish, likely failed. The drone entered Israeli air space; Israeli jets scrambled and easily intercepted it. It was shot down over an open area where none could be injured. Bottom line - score one point for the IDF; nothing for our enemies. 

This is a 10 second video. According to the IDF's YouTube channel, it is:

An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) was identified penetrating Israeli airspace this morning, and was intercepted by the IAF at approximately 10:00 AM. IDF soldiers are currently searching the area where the drone was downed, in open areas in the northern Negev, to locate and identify the drone.
