Israel's military has deployed a missile defense system near the Lebanese border, days after warplanes shot down a mysterious unmanned aircraft that entered its skies. An army spokesman said on Tuesday that the Patriot missile defense battery was deployed in the northern city of Haifa. He refused to say if the battery's deployment was connected to Saturday's drone incident. The drone is widely believed to have originated in Lebanon. (AP Photo/Ariel Schalit)
