The IDF announced that the incident, which is being investigated, was due to a technical failure and that no classified information was compromised.
In July, 2017, a Skylark drone crashed in the Gaza Strip.
Then as well, the IDF declared that classified information was not compromised.
The Skylark, the IDF’s smallest drone model, is operated by the Artillery Corps and is intended for tactical missions such as patrol and intelligence gathering.
This is the fifth in a series of such drone crashes since the start of 2017 in Lebanon, Gaza and the West Bank.
