Israeli drone crashes in Gaza

An IDF reconnaissance drone has crashed in Gaza. The incident is under investigation. 

An Israeli unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) fell and crashed in the southern Gaza Strip on Monday night.

The IDF stated that the incident is under investigation and stressed that no intelligence or information were compromised.

Hamas’ Al Qassam Brigades claimed it downed the aircraft.

The IDF has previously lost drones in similar incidents.

In March, the Hezbollah terror group recovered an Israeli reconnaissance drone that crashed in Syria.

The Skylark (Rochev Shamayim) unmanned drone, unveiled in 2006, is a mini close-range tactical UAV system designed and manufactured by Elbit Systems to carry out intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance operations.

The UAV is primarily used for worst weather reconnaissance, data collection, and target marking for missions upwards of 50 kilometers.
