JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel shot down an Iranian drone launched from Syria and in response also struck Iranian targets there on Saturday, the Israeli military said.

"A combat helicopter successfully intercepted an Iranian UAV that was launched from Syria and infiltrated Israel. The aircraft was identified by the Aerial Defense Systems at an early phase and was under surveillance until the interception," the military said in a statement.

"In response, the IDF (Israel Defence Forces) targeted Iranian targets in Syria," the military said. It gave no further details.
