The detected $gamma$-ray emission can be interpreted as the results of proton-proton interaction between the supernova and the CO-rich surrounding.

Abstract

SNR G24.7+0.6 is a 9.5 kyrs radio and $gamma$-ray supernova remnant evolving in a dense medium. In the GeV regime, SNR G24.7+0.6 (3FHL,J1834.1--0706e/FGES,J1834.1--0706) shows a hard spectral index ($Gamma$$sim$2) up to $200$,GeV, which makes it a good candidate to be observed with Cherenkov telescopes such as MAGIC. We observed the field of view of snr with the MAGIC telescopes for a total of 31 hours. We detect very high energy $gamma$-ray emission from an extended source located 0.34degr away from the center of the radio SNR. The new source, named mgc is detected up to 5,TeV, and its spectrum is well-represented by a power-law function with spectral index of $2.74 pm 0.08$. The complexity of the region makes the identification of the origin of the very-high energy emission difficult, however the spectral agreement with the LAT source and overlapping position at less than 1.5$sigma$ point to a common origin. We analysed 8 years of ermi-LAT data to extend the spectrum of the source down to 60,MeV. ermi-LAT and MAGIC spectra overlap within errors and the global broad band spectrum is described by a power-law with exponential cutoff at $1.9pm0.5$,TeV. The detected $gamma$-ray emission can be interpreted as the results of proton-proton interaction between the supernova and the CO-rich surrounding.
