 Lebanese Army officials say an Israeli drone crashed in the waters off Tripoli on Saturday, reports Reuters.

 
“At around 8:30 am (0530 GMT), a drone belonging to the Israeli enemy went down in the port of Tripoli, and the army has taken the necessary measures,” the Army command said in a statement, without elaborating.
 
A security official said the pilotless aircraft crashed into the sea.
 
Photos showed a Jewish star and Hebrew writing on the aircraft, which was basically intact although slightly damaged when removed from the water.
 
There was no comment from Israel. 
 
According to the report, IAF jets struck in the mountainous areas near the town of Saghbine. Increased Israeli Air Force activity over the Hermon area in south eastern Lebanon was reported beforehand.
 
On June 21, Israel carried out an air strike in eastern Bekaa region to destroy one of its drones that had crashed in the mountains outside the village of Saghbine.
