ISIS Weaponizes Drones: ‘This Is the Stuff Everyone Has Been Terrified About’
ISIS has figured out how to weaponize the drones its members have been using for surveillance, and so has Hezbollah and other terror groups – and they’re starting to send them into battle against each other, particularly in Syria.
From the Associated Press:
“A video belonging to an AL Qaeda offshoot, Jund al-Aqsa, purportedly shows a drone landing on Syrian military barracks. In another video , small explosives purportedly dropped by the Iran-backed Shiite militant group Hezbollah target the Sunni militant group Jabhat Fatah al-Sham, formerly known as the Nusra Front.
“A U.S. military official, who spoke anonymously because he wasn’t authorized to discuss the matter publicly, said the U.S. military is aware of the development. Commanders have warned troops to take cover if they see what they might have once dismissed as a surveillance drone, he said.
“[Chris Woods] The head of the Airwars project, which tracks the international air war in Iraq, Syria and Libya, said the weaponized drones are clumsy but will scare people.”
And Woods didn’t pull punches about the possible ramifications of such technology in the hands of terrorists.
“There are a million ways you can weaponize drones — fire rockets, strap things in and crash them,” Chris Woods said, then adding, “This is the stuff everyone has been terrified about for years, and now it’s a reality.”
