An unmanned aerial vehicle from Gaza crashed in Israeli territory near the border fence on Thursday.

The IDF stated that it had identified the drone in Gaza airspace and deployed forces to the area to potentially stop it from crossing into Israeli territory.

The drone crashed on its own before the IDF had reason to engage it, landing on the Israeli side of the border.

Soldiers from the IDF's Engineering Corps retrieved the drone and were further investigating the incident.
