The Israeli army said on Friday it shot down an IDF drone overnight near Mount Hermon in the Golan Heights after suspecting that it came from Lebanese territory.
The army said it is investigating the incident which happened overnight.
In a statement, the army said the sirens were activated over a suspected intrusion into Israeli territory by a drone, which later turned out to be false.
This comes amid heightened tension in the region, as Israel fears Hezbollah would retaliate the killing last month of one of its fighters in an airstrike in Syria attributed to Israel.
