A drone with a video camera which crashed in a wooded area on Mount Hevron revealed a European Union (EU) espionage operation intended to spy on and gather intelligence about Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria.
The footage from the drone was retrieved after it crashed in view of residents of the town of Ma'on in Judea.
The residents took the drone to the Regavim Movement for Preservation of State Lands, which examined the drone and was shocked to discover that it was sent by the EU, supposedly an honest broker, acting in conjunction with residents of Arab towns and villages to spy on Jewish towns in Judea and Samaria, some of which contain IDF bases and antennas. The drone contained many such espionage videos, the final one being of its crash.
The Regavim organization blamed the government's failure to act against illegal construction of Arab housing by the EU for this brazen act of espionage against Jewish communities and IDF locations.
