JERUSALEM, Israel – Israel shot down an Iranian drone over Israeli territory early Saturday morning, sparking a series of events that many feared could lead to an escalation in hostilities.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the Iranian drone incident on Saturday shows that “our warnings were 100 percent correct.

“I have been warning for some time about the dangers of Iran’s military entrenchment in Syria,” Netanyahu said in a statement released Saturday evening. “Iran seeks to use Syrian territory to attack Israel for its professed goal of destroying Israel. This morning Iran brazenly violated Israel’s sovereignty. They dispatched an Iranian drone from Syrian territory into Israel. And this demonstrates that our warnings were 100% correct. Israel holds Iran and its Syrian hosts responsible for today’s aggression. We will continue to do whatever is necessary to protect our sovereignty and our security.”
