JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel has deployed a missile defense battery in a main city near the Lebanese border, the military said Tuesday, two days after warplanes shot down an unmanned aircraft that entered Israeli skies.
An army spokesman said the Patriot missile defense battery has been stationed in the northern city of Haifa. He refused to say if the battery's deployment was connected to Saturday's drone incident.
He spoke on condition of anonymity in line with military regulations.
