“Mil­i­tant groups like Hezbol­lah and the Is­lamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) have learned how to weaponize sur­veil­lance drones and use them against each other and for­eign forces, adding a new twist to Syria’s civil war, a U.S. mil­i­tary of­fi­cial and oth­ers say,” notes a new CBS News re­port, cit­ing two videos that of­fer proof the mil­i­tants had armed the air­borne de­vices. Two French sol­diers were in­jured in the at­tacks staged in north­ern Iraq; two Kur­dish fight­ers were killed.

“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,” CBS News stated.
