Drones vs stones: Palestinian takes down Israeli drone with stone

Days of Palestine -

Palestinian protesters near the Gaza border managed to bring down an Israeli drone with a stone and a slingshot, a video posted online revealed.

The footage by Press TV shows Palestinians hurling stones at an Israeli drone with a slingshot. A heavy cloud of grey smoke can be seen, while sirens are heard in the background.

One of the demonstrators is eventually successful, prompting the protesters to erupt in celebration. The incident happened on Friday.

There has been no reaction from Israel, although Tel Aviv has been using drones to monitor and shot tear gas at Palestinian protests.

Palestinians have been protesting near the Gaza border as part of the Great Return March since the end of March.

The demonstrations are slated to continue until Nakba on May 15, a day when Palestinians mark the mass evacuation from their homes and lands by Zionist militias in 1948.

At least Israeli occupation forces have killed 50 peaceful protesters and wounded about 8,000 others since March 30.
