The Israel Air Force on Saturday, October 6, 2012, intercepted an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that penetrated the Israeli airspace, the military said in a statement. A military spokesman said two fighter jets were scrambled from a southern air base at around 10 a.m. local time (0800 GMT) after a ground control station identified the drone, which was shot down over the Yatir Forest, an area in the northern Negev.

"The UAV took images in real time and we have high-resolution images of Israel," said Esmail Kossari. The UAV was later shot down by the Israeli Air Force over the Negev Desert, he added.

The Ahyub UAV entered Israeli airspace not far from Gaza, and flew for around half an hour close to Israel's Dimona Nuclear Research Institute before being shot down by a fighter jet, which filmed its attack.

The Israel Defense Force claimed it had detected the UAV over the Mediterranean Sea well before it entered Israeli airspace and shot it down near Mount Hebron, the Jerusalem Post said.

Iran also has UAVs capable of carrying out strike missions, Kossari said. "So we can say if Israel carries out any aggression against us, we will reply on its territory."

Iran's Defense Minister General Akhmad Vahidi said on Sunday that Iran has much more advanced UAVs than the one shot down over Israel.
