An Israeli military drone falls inside Lebanese territory, the Israel Defense Forces says.

The device — a small copter model — was performing “routine activities” when it went down, the military says, likely referring to reconnaissance. Such crashes are relatively common and there are generally no concerns that intelligence can be gleaned from the off-the-shelf devices.

The IDF says the incident will be investigated.
