The Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Armored Division recovered six unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) near the Dara’a Governorate city of Izra’a on Sunday after soldiers from the army base watched one of the drones crash along the Dara’a-Izra’a Highway.

According to a military source from the 5th Armored Division, the six drones discovered by the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Armored Division had belonged to the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF).

Five of the six drones had crash landed by themselves, while the final drone was downed by the soldiers from the SAA’s 5th Division after they received reports of an aircraft circling the Hezbollah and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) training camps in the Rif Dimashq Governorate’s southern countryside near the Dara’a Governorate border.

These Israeli drones were all recovered by the Syrian Armed Forces before sundown on Sunday, marking the first time the latter has captured this many UAVs in 24 hours.

Hezbollah and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) both train the Palestinian Islamic Jihad forces in southern Syria – once they complete their training, they are smuggled back into the West Bank in order to begin operations against the Israeli Defense Forces.

Two months ago, the Israeli Air Force carried out a dozen airstrikes over the Al-Quneitra and Rif Dimashq Governorate’s in response to an alleged missile strike in Upper Galilee – the IDF Spokesmen claimed the Syrian Government was responsible for this attack because they harbor the PIJ training camps.
