The Syrian Arab Army intercepted a drone loaded with cluster bombs over Jabal Al-Sheikh (var. Mount Hermon) region near the occupied Golan Heights on Saturday morning.
The Syrian Armed Forces said the drone belonged to the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), adding that they have been closely monitoring their airspace since the recent turmoil in the Persian Gulf region.
Israel has not commented on this interception nor the previous downing of a drone over the Damascus suburb of Aqraba earlier this week.
In addition, Syrian intelligence agencies discovered a stash of weapons, ammunition, medicine, food, and equipment produced in Israel, in the village of Barika in the suburbs of Quneitra.
Israel seized control of the Golan Heights from Syria during the 1967 Six-Day War and annexed the territory in 1981, although the move was not recognised by the United Nations. In 2018, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution urging Israel to immediately withdraw its forces from the occupied territory.
