GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- An Israeli drone crashed in the southern Gaza Strip on Wednesday near the border with Israel, witnesses said.
Eyewitnesses told Ma'an that the drone fell east of the city of Rafah.
Israeli forces quickly entered Gaza and moved the drone to the Israeli side of the border, witnesses said.
An Israeli army spokesman said he was unfamiliar with the incident.
Israeli military drones regularly conduct reconnaissance missions over Gaza even after a ceasefire that ended Operation Pillar of Defense, a 2012 Israeli military offensive on the coastal territory which left 170 Palestinians and six Israelis dead.
