On June 24, Israel's military said it launched a Patriot missile at an incoming unmanned aerial vehicle, which turned away unharmed.

The Israeli military said on Wednesday that it had shot down a drone from Syria that had entered its airspace.

Earlier this week, state media said air defences struck an Israeli warplane and shot down missiles targeting the T4 air base in Homs province.

"We will continue to act decisively against any spillover and any infiltration of Israeli territory or airspace", Netanyahu said.

Wednesday's incident came as Netanyahu travelled to Russian Federation to meet President Vladimir Putin.
