Comments:
  1. According to some sources IDF/AF units shot down two UAV in total belonging to Hizbullah. One of the drones was shot down over Kibbutz Cabri, in the Western Galilee. The other drone was downed over the southern Lebanese port city of Tyre (Verluste IDF/AF und Libanon von 07/2006 bis heute, http://www.pom-tom.de/Losses_IDFAF-L_dat.html). However other sources credit only one kill this day, which was achieved by the crew of F-16 "Barak", number 074, belonging to 109 Tayeset "Valley / Ha' Emek" (Představeni zabijáci Ababilů, informujeme, in Letectví+kosmonautika, No. 5, 2007). It is possible that the second UAV wasn't shoot down by an aircraft but by anti-aircraft artillery.
  2. An Israel Air Force warplane on Thursday December 16th 2010 shot down an apparently unmanned balloon that flew over the Dimona nuclear reactor.
  3. The Israeli Air Force shot down an unidentified aerial vehicle that penetrated Israel's airspace on Saturday October 6th 2012. IDF forces shot down the drone over the Negev, south of Mount Hebron.
