US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — The Israeli army stressed that one of its drones crashed in northern Gaza during a routine operation in the area.
Avichay Adraee, spokesman for the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), confirmed the news in a Twitter statement, adding that there was “no concern about information leaks” from the drone.
Meanwhile, a source from one of the resistance groups in Gaza who spoke to AA on condition of anonymity said the group had taken the drone but gave no further details.
Gaza has witnessed a military escalation since Friday, when Palestinian resistance groups fired rockets from Gaza into Israeli areas, while the Israeli army targeted several positions of the Hamas military wing in Gaza.
The developments in Gaza came after clashes broke out in Quds between Palestinians and Israeli forces who tried to prevent the gathering in the Damascus Gate area in the Old City of Quds.
On Monday, the Israeli security cabinet authorized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Benny Gantz to attack Gaza if rocket attacks continue.
