An Israeli Air Force fighter jet shot down a “hostile aerial target”, which is believed to be a drone from Yemens’ Houthi rebel group, over the Red Sea earlier today, says the military.

The IDF released a short statement, which states the target was heading toward Israel, and the IAF’s air traffic control monitored the device throughout the incident.

The Houthis, which are backed by Iran, have claimed to have fired several drones at Israel’s southernmost city of Eilat today.
