An Israel Air Force Night Rider drone pilotless aircraft crashed in Hamas-occupied Gaza on Sunday, 1 Rosh Chodesh Kislev 5774. The Office of the IDF Spokesperson stated the crash was the result of a technical malfunction. The PA (Palestinian Authority) Maan news agency reports Hamas terrorists in northern Gaza near Jabalya took control of the aircraft.
Another IAF drone crashed into the Mediterranean about two weeks ago due to engine failure. The air force’s 669 rescue unit was dispatched to recover the aircraft.
