The peculiar thing is why didn't the IAF knock it down straight away? They allowed it to go deep into Israel before knocking it down. Maybe they tried to take control over the drone by remote control? but failed.

There is always that but an Israeli jet sure did shoot something down and it wasn't a bird or a jet
I think this is our drone.

The drone's intersection video
BEIRUT (AP) -- Lebanon's state news agency says Israeli warplanes have staged mock raids over villages in southern Lebanon, breaking the sound barrier.
A former Lebanese general says the drone the Israeli army claims to have shot down near the Mediterranean Sea was probably operated by Americans, Press TV reports.
“We view the attempt to violate Israel’s airspace very gravely and we will consider our reaction,” Defense Minister Ehud Barak said, according to an e-mailed statement from the Defense Ministry.
The interception comes amid escalating tension over the nuclear aims of Shiite Muslim Iran, which has called for Israel’s destruction and supports the Shiite Hezbollah group in Lebanon. Iran denies allegations by the U.S., Israel and many of their allies that it may be trying to develop atomic weapons.
In December, the Iran televised images of a U.S. drone used for gathering intelligence that came down on Iranian territory. Last month, the Persian Gulf nation said was equipping its own drones with missiles.
Hezbollah Says It Sent Drone Over Israel
The leader of the Lebanese militant Hezbollah group has claimed responsibility for launching the drone aircraft that entered Israeli airspace earlier this week. The rare admission Thursday by Hassan Nasrallah raises regional tensions at a sensitive time when the group's backers, Syria and Iran, are under pressure. Earlier Thursday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Hezbollah of launching the drone.
