The U.S. military has shot down “at least dozens” of Iranian drones en route to Israel late Saturday and early Sunday, a senior U.S. official tells Fox News.

“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,” a U.S. official said.

The interceptions come hours after Iran launched drones, and later ballistic missiles, following a deadly strike on its Syrian consulate earlier this month.


Fox News can confirm that the U.S. is closely coordinating with Jordan and Egypt.

Iran said earlier Sunday that its attack “can be deemed concluded” but warned it would respond decisively to any nation that let Israel use its airspace to attack Iran.
