The Israeli air force has shot down a small unmanned aircraft after it entered the south of the country, the military has said.

The aircraft crashed in the north of the Negev desert. It is not clear where it came from.

Military officials said the aircraft had flown in from the west, but not from the Gaza Strip.

The army said it was unclear if the drone was being used for reconnaissance or for a potential attack.
