An Israeli drone crashed in the southern Gaza Strip on Tuesday morning, a day after a similar incident in southern Lebanon, the Israel Defense Forces said.
“During operational activity by IDF troops a short while ago, an IDF drone fell in the southern Gaza Strip,” the military said in a statement.
The IDF said there was no risk of intelligence being taken from the drone, which appears to have been a small, off-the-shelf model used for simple reconnaissance missions.
On Monday, a similar drone crashed in southern Lebanon, with the Hezbollah terror group saying it shot it down.
The IDF confirmed that one of its drones fell in Lebanese territory, but refrained from specifying the cause of the crash. “During operational activities by IDF troops on the Lebanese border, an IDF drone fell in Lebanese territory,” the IDF said in a statement Monday.
