Israel has used the American-made Patriot missiles to down drones before-three drones in 2014-two launched from Gaza and one from Syria-and one Syrian drone over Golan Heights as recently as April.

Israel and the United States have been working towards the base during the past two years, and all facilities necessary for a permanent military presence will be put in place soon, by when several dozens of USA soldiers will be stationed, said Zvika Haimovitch, head of the Aerial Defense Division in the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF).

The drone, believed to be used for intelligence gathering, was tracked by the IDF after it took off from an airfield in Damascus and flew to the Syrian Golan.

Update: The drone was an Iranian made drone that took off from Damascus, Syria. Haaretz later reported the drone was Russian and breached Israeli airspace by mistake.

According to IDF Spokesman Brig. "We will respond to every action very clearly and we will act to prevent any such attempts". Gen. Zvika Haimovich, the commander of Israel's aerial defense.

BISLACH AIR BASE, Israel-Israel and the United States inaugurated the first American military base on Israeli soil September 18, which will serve dozens of soldiers operating a missile defense system.

Officials from Syria, Hezbollah and Iran had no immediate comment on the incident. The IDF confirmed that the aircraft- manufactured by Iran and operated by Hezbollah- has been destroyed.

Israel seized 1,200sq/km of the Golan Heights from Syria in the Six-Day War of 1967 and later annexed it in a move never recognised by the global community. Israel has grown increasingly concerned about Iran's involvement in the civil war in neighboring Syria, where its troops are supporting President Bashar Assad.
