Drone from Gaza overflies Ashdod in new worry for Israel


Israel's military says it has downed an unmanned drone along its southern coastline, the first time it has encountered an unmanned aircraft since its offensive on Gaza began seven days ago.

Hamas, the group that runs Gaza, said its armed wing had sent several drones to carry out "special missions" deep inside Israel - a development which, if confirmed, would mark a step up in the sophistication of its arsenal.

The military said in a tweet that the drone came from Gaza and that it was shot down on Monday by a patriot missile near the southern city of Ashdod.

The force said it was trying to locate debris in the area about 25kms north of Gaza, and determine whether it had carried explosives. more
