Palestinian Israeli conflict

Israeli military says it downed drone near Jordan border

Published: Updated:

Israeli forces downed a UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) that approached Israel’s border with Jordan on Tuesday, the military said, without specifying where the aircraft might have originated.

Israel bombarded Gaza with air strikes and Palestinian militants resumed cross-border rocket fire on Tuesday after a brief overnight lull during which the UN sent a small fuel convoy into the enclave, where it says 52,000 people are now displaced.

Israeli leaders said they would press on, for now, with an offensive to destroy the capabilities of the armed factions Hamas and Islamic Jihad, amid calls by the US and other world powers for an end to the conflict.
