According to the sources, having heard quadrotors, the facility’s defense forces tried to thwart the attack with the use of an electronic warfare system. One drone was intercepted. Another one lost contact with the GPS system and fell down into the facility’s roof. The third one, which sustained the least damage, was handed over to the security forces.

The facility’s defense was reinforced following previous attacks, the agency said, adding that this is why the damage from the latest attack was insignificant.
