Continued violence in Gaza Strip

Jerusalem (AP) -- Israel's military says it has downed an unmanned drone along its southern coastline, the first time it has encountered such a weapon since its struggle with Gaza Strip militants began last week.

The military says the drone came from Gaza and that it was shot down on Monday by a Patriot missile near the southern city of Ashdod.

Since the conflict began, militants have fired nearly 1,000 rockets at Israel, causing some injuries and damage to property, but no fatalities among Israelis.

By contrast, 172 Palestinians have died as a result of Israel's air attacks.
