Israel says it shot down drone from Gaza

  • Israel says it has shot down a drone launched from Gaza. The unmanned craft was brought down using a Patriot missile near Ashdod city, Israeli officials said.

    Israel also faced rocket fire from Lebanon, which was met with retaliatory action.

    Meanwhile, Palestinian protesters clashed with Israeli forces in the West Bank, resulting in the death of a 21-year-old Palestinian.

    More than 170 Palestinians, most of them civilians, have been killed in Gaza since Israel began air strikes a week ago.
