U.S Military Shoots Down ‘Dozens’ of Iranian Attack Drones Headed for Israel

The United States military has shot down “dozens” of pilotless Iranain attack drones that were fired at Israel by the Islamic regime.

The attacks from Iran were launched against the Jewish state in the early hours of Sunday morning.

However, the unprecedented air attack from Iranian drones and missiles largely fizzled in the face of the Jewish state’s powerful air defenses with assistance from the U.S. military and other allies.

A senior U.S. official told Fox News that the U.S. military has shot down “at least dozens” of Iranian drones en route to Israel early Sunday local time.

The official added that U.S. military engagement is ongoing.

Videos show missiles raining down in the skies above Israel.

“U.S. forces in the region continue to shoot down Iranian-launched drones targeting Israel.

“Our forces remain postured to provide additional defensive support and to protect U.S. forces operating in the region.”

Israel’s layered and advanced air defense systems intercepted 99% of the missiles fired by Iran, a senior Israeli official said.

“The [Israeli] response will be unprecedented,” he said.

Officials added that the U.S. military assets in the region will shoot down any missiles or drones that are fired and may threaten the U.S. or its allies.

“The U.S. will not strike, but it will defend its allies,” a senior U.S. military official said.

“If things are in the air we will shoot them down.”

Fox News also confirmed the U.S. closely coordinated with Jordan and Egypt.

Jordan played a key part in downing projectiles fired at Israel.

Officials say that the use of airspace will also be something to watch and that they monitor.

Iran said earlier Sunday that its attack “can be deemed concluded.”

However, the regime warned it would respond decisively to any nation that lets Israel use its airspace to attack Iran.
