Israeli Occupation Forces Deploy Armed Drones in West Bank

M.Y | DOP -

The Israeli occupation forces announced it has officially started using armed drones in invasions of several parts of the occupied West Bank.

Israeli military officials said occupation forces were trained to use and operate the armed drones during the invasions of the West Bank.

While the drones have not yet been used to carry out an attack, like firing missiles, they are ready for operational use when needed, they added.

Several days ago, Israeli Channel 11 said the commanders in the Israeli military in the West Bank and the Commander of the “Menashe Brigade” underwent training on the operation of armed drones to use in invasions into areas of the West Bank.

The Israeli occupation has been using its armed drones in attacking several parts of the Gaza Strip, in addition to using its fighter jets, to assassinate fighters or leaders, including in their homes, killing them and their families, especially during the frequent Israeli offensives of the coastal region.

The Israeli occupation has also been using surveillance drones in the West Bank, especially during protests against the Annexation Wall and colonies, and used drones to fire gas bombs and even live rounds, including in the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied Jerusalem.

However, the use of armed drones to fire rockets in the West Bank could lead to a serious escalation and retaliation by the Palestinian fighters, which would also mean even more escalation across the occupied territory.
