The Israeli military has confirmed that a drone crashed in Syria earlier this week in unclear circumstances.

In a statement, the military said the "Skylark" went down on Sunday and that the incident was being investigated.

Today's statement said there is "no risk of a breach of information."

Hezbollah's media arm published photographs of what it said was a drone it had shot down after infiltrating Syrian airspace in the Golan Heights.

Although is not actively fighting in the Syrian civil war, it keeps close tabs on its enemies and Lebanon's Iranian-backed Hezbollah militant group, which are both backing Syrian forces.

Last week, shot down a Syrian anti-aircraft missile fired at an Israeli aircraft carrying out an airstrike on a suspected Hezbollah weapons convoy in Syria.
