An unmanned spy drone, reportedly belonging to Israel, has crashed in eastern Lebanon, according to the country's official news agency.

The drone was downed in the village of Younin in the Baalbek region on Saturday and caused fire in the area, the National News Agency reported.

Lebanese security forces surrounded the area and officials are investigating the cause of the incident.

Informed sources announced that the spy drone belonged to Israel.
Israeli reconnaissance planes have usually violated the Lebanese airspace, despite UN Security Council Resolution 1701 which brokered a ceasefire in the war Israel launched against Lebanon in 2006.
The resolution calls on Israel to respect Lebanon's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

In 2009, Lebanon filed a complaint with the United Nations, presenting over 7,000 documents pertaining to Israeli violation of the Lebanese territory.
