 IDF downed Egyptian drone over Negev

On Monday, IDF fighters shot down an Egyptian drone near the border after its operator lost control of the drone. According to preliminary data, the drone was not armed.

The drone was closely monitored until it was shot down near Mount Sagi after crossing Israeli airspace. The IDF coordinated with the Egyptians before shooting down the drone.

Despite coordinating with the Egyptian side, Israel prevented publication of the incident for two days due to sensitivity towards Egypt.
