Israeli drone crashes in Lebanon

An Israeli drone crashes in southern Lebanon. The Hezbollah terror group says it shot it down.

The Israel Defense Forces confirms that one of its drones fell in Lebanese territory, but refrains from specifying the reason why.

“During operational activities by IDF troops on the Lebanese border, an IDF drone fell in Lebanese territory,” the military says.

The IDF says there is no risk of intelligence being taken from the device, which appears to have been a small, off-the-shelf reconnaissance model.
