Israeli drone crashes in southern Lebanon: Army

AFP , Saturday 31 Mar 2018

An Israeli drone has crashed in southern Lebanon due to a technical malfunction, the military said on Saturday, after Hezbollah media labeled it a spy device.

The Israeli military said that the drone crash in an open area on Friday night posed "no risk of leaked information." It provided no further details.

Hezbollah television station Al-Manar reported that the "spy drone" fell between Baraachit and Beit Yahoun in southern Lebanon.

It said that "a second spy plane targeted it with a guided missile, which resulted in it being destroyed."

Israel and Shia militant group Hezbollah, based in neighbouring Lebanon, fought a devastating war in 2006 and the two remain bitter enemies.
