Missile Interceptors Set up Near Haifa

After an unkown drone succeeded in penetrating Israeli air space Saturday, the IDF responded by stationing Patriot missile interceptors in different parts of northern Israel, including Mt. Carmel, near Haifa, in what one Israeli official called a routine step. 

According to military sources, the Patriot has very high interception capabilities and was put into place as the country celebrated Simchat Torah just in case Iran, who is suspected to be the source behind the drone, followed up with more drones.
