IDF troops spotted and downed a drone near the southern Gaza Strip security fence, the Israel Defense Forces reported on Thursday.

Last month, the IDF launched an airstrike hitting Palestinian terrorists behind an earlier drone attack from the Gaza Strip.

Drones are emerging as a new technological component of warfare. Israel has developed new ways to counter the threat to ensure its forces and civilians are protected.

In 2018, the Israeli news site Ynet reported that drones had dropped explosive devices onto Israeli homes in the south, a fact that it said has been hidden by the Israeli Army.

The report raised the fear that this might become a new method of attack in the next round of hostilities between Israel and Hamas.

Israel also features the danger of drone attack in the north from the terrorist group Hezbollah.
