JERUSALEM (AP) — An unmanned Israeli surveillance aircraft crashed in the Gaza Strip on Sunday after experiencing a technical malfunction, the military said.
The military said it was investigating what caused the Skylark drone to go down.
Israel uses drones to gather intelligence on militant activity in Gaza. The territory is governed by the Hamas militant group, and several other armed groups also operate there.
In a statement, Hamas said it had "seized" the aircraft. It gave no further details and did not provide any photos.
The army would not say whether any secrets or technology had slipped into Hamas' hands. Military officials though said the Skylark has safeguards to prevent disclosure of information to unauthorized personnel. They spoke on condition of anonymity in line with security protocol.
