JERUSALEM (AFP) -- An unmanned aircraft of the sort Israel uses for surveillance and missile strikes in Gaza crashed in the south of the territory early on Tuesday, sources on both sides said.

Members of Hamas' military wing, the al-Qassam Brigades, discovered the remains near Khan Younis, witnesses said.

Parts of the unmanned aircraft were found 500 meters from the border with Israel.

"A Sky Rider drone crashed in the southern Gaza Strip due to a technical malfunction," an Israeli army spokeswoman told AFP.

"An investigation is under way."

In November 2013, militants in Gaza claimed to have shot down an Israeli drone over the northern Gaza Strip.

Israel's army confirmed that a reconnaissance drone had crashed while on an "executive mission," but said that it malfunctioned due to a technical problem.

Hamas must use this drone and built their own like Iran.

Careful - Israel might have deliberately done this. Who knows what sophisticated equipment it has on board still transmitting back to israel......

To Cashief@#1: Gazans cant even build a sewage treatment plant even when handed donir aid and donated expertise but you expect them to reverse engineer a UAV? Hahaha riiiiiight. How about Gazans start working on building a state and a rebuilding a society, one that doesnt revolve around maniacal hatred of another people. Peoplehood cannot exist solely upon hatred. Yet here you are dreaming of more weapons. Pretty shameful.
