Israeli SkyLark drone crashes in West Bank, again
Israeli media claims that the crash was due to a technical malfunction.
Israeli media revealed on Wednesday that a drone belonging to the Israeli occupation forces was destroyed during a military activity in Nablus.
Srugim Israeli website stated that "a month after stopping a group of Israeli army drones from flying, the army announced today that a SkyLark (Rochev Shamayim) drone crashed during a routine activity for it in Samaria."
According to the news website, parts of the Israeli drone were recovered, asserting that "there was no information leak."

It is noteworthy that the occupation army decided in 2017 to suspend the operation of the SkyLark after they repeatedly crashed due to technical malfunctions in several accidents in the occupied West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
Earlier in October, two drones of the same model crashed in the West Bank, prompting the occupation army to suspend the model's operations for a period of time to check for further flaws.
Last September, Israeli occupation forces (IOF) announced that an Israeli unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) crashed in the Mediterranean Sea due to “malfunction”, as per The Jerusalem Post.
On 26 May, a hostile Israeli SkyLark crashed on the outskirts of the southern town of Rmaych, after it violated Lebanese airspace.
