Contractors at IDF base stole dozens of weapons, sold them to criminals
IDF says no classified information can be obtained from drone that crashed in GazaShortly after Hamas claimed that it successfully downed an IDF drone, the Israeli military confirmed that a UAV fell in Gaza but clarified that no classified information can be obtained from it. This is the third incident of an IDF drone falling from the sky since the beginning of 2017.
A small IDF drone fell from the sky in southern Gaza early Tuesday morning. The IDF stated that the UAV did not contain any classified information and that the circumstances of the crash are being investigated.
Hamas announced that it successfully downed an Israeli reconnaissance drone near the Al-Maghazi refugee camp. Shortly thereafter, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit confirmed that a military Skylark drone fell in the Palestinian territory but that no classified information can be obtained from it.
Skylark drones, which are manufactured by Elbit Systems, are capable of deleting their codes and the classified information on them and therefore there is no risk of intelligence or operational damage.
Last week, an IDF drone crashed in Bethlehem. IDF soldiers swept the area and located the device. In March, a Skylark drone belonging to the IDF crashed in Gaza apparently due to a technical malfunction.
