JERUSALEM, May 26 (Xinhua) -- An Israeli military drone has crashed in Lebanon due to "malfunction," the Israeli military said on Thursday.
"A few days ago, during a routine operation, an unmanned Skylark aircraft crashed due to a technical malfunction," the Israeli military wrote on Twitter, without elaborating on the details.
"The aircraft was recently located in Lebanese territory," it said, adding that no information from the drone was leaked.
Israel frequently operates drones in Lebanon to collect information about Hezbollah, an Iran-backed Shiite organization. Israel and Hezbollah fought a deadly war in 2006 that ended with a fragile truce.
