Israeli SkyLark drone crashed in South Lebanon
A SkyLark crashed over South Lebanon and the Lebanese Armed Forces managed to capture it.
On Thursday, Al Mayadeen’s correspondent reported a hostile Israeli SkyLark drone between the towns of Ayta ash-Shab and Rmaych, southern Lebanon.
Our correspondent noted that "the occupying forces attempted to recapture the Israeli drone” however, the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) assumed control over it first.
In a statement, (LAF) confirmed that on Thursday, at approximately 18:30, an Israeli SkyLark drone crashed on the outskirts of the southern town of Rmaych, after it violated Lebanese airspace.

The statement read that this Israeli violation is being followed up in coordination with the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL).
In a related incident, last Thursday, the Israeli occupation forces misidentified one of their own UAVs and attempted to shoot it down, and Israeli media reported on disputes among the occupation's ranks due to the misunderstanding regarding the drone in northern occupied Palestine in a bid to find the occurring error's cause.

Furthermore, in another incident earlier this year, the resistance reported that the UAV went on a recon mission that lasted for 40 minutes and covered 70 km in occupied Palestine, adding that it returned "unharmed despite the Israeli occupation's repeated attempts to down it."
