Way to go Israel!

There are some nations that the world would like to think of as the poor little kid that can not defend it's self without the assistance of it's big brother nation. This is simply not the case. Israel does have an ally in the United States, but it is far from defenseless. When other countries ignore their borders and violate their airspace, Israeli air force have the technology and training to intercept and deal with the issue all by themselves.

The drone that crossed into Israeli airspace over the Gaza Strip may have been playing the odds, but it came up short. Israeli controllers were unable to identify the drone and ultimately decided to use their God given right of self defense. Thirty five miles past the border pilots shot the drone and downed it in an unpopulated wooded area. The defense department has released a clip of the drone kill shot.

It will be interesting to see who the nation of origin is once helos and search teams are able to locate the remains. Either way Israel has sent a message that they are not a nation to be bullied and they are capable and willing to defend their lands, waters, and air space.
