A military drone crashed in the Gaza Strip following a technical error on Monday.

The Skylark drone crashed during operations above the southern Gaza Strip, and an initial probe showed a technical problem was responsible, the military said. There was no concern over potentially sensitive information being leaked, it added. 

Earlier, media outlets in Gaza said an Israeli drone had crashed east of the city of Dir al-Balah. According to the reports, the crashed drone was seized by members of Hamas. Along with this, a high level of Israeli military vehicle traffic was also reported along the Gaza border.
