The Israeli army has downed an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) flying over Israeli territory.

The device, launched by Hizbullah from Lebanon, reportedly carried 45-kilograms of explosives, according to my beeper service, and was shot down over water, according to Israel Channel Ten TV.

UPDATE 20:45: An IAF anti-aircraft officer, who denied that the aircraft was armed, told the program anchors in a telephone interview that the craft was spotted at 19:00 this evening traveling from north to south, 10 kilometers out to sea. He said an F-16 jet downed the UAV, and that it was the third attempt to send such weaponry into Israel.

Haaretz has more details.
