It must be pointed out immediately that in the most recent war globally, the one between Azerbaijan and Armenia, the Armenians LOST despite vastly superior weapon counts, because suicide drone strikes eroded those superior numbers. Israel is now facing that exact same fate.
At least FIVE (5) drones have been seen and radar tracked over cities in southern Israel and some of those drones have successfully destroyed Iron Dome missile sites.
At this time it is not known who is supplying Hamas and the Gaza Strip with such weapons. Both Turkey and Iran manufacture such drones, and both those nations have publicly decried Israeli air strikes on civilian targets in Gaza.
This is a staggering development in the hostilities between Israel and the Palestinians.
So game-changing is this development, that Israel has instructed citizens in the border areas of Gaza to take immediate shelter and remain in their homes until further notice.
Those residents have also been urgently instructed to shut off all camera-enabled doorbell systems, home security systems and disconnect them from the Internet because, it is believed, Hamas is using cyber hacking to access those camera systems for targeting data.
There is much more to report, and that additional information will be added to this story as UPDATES below. Please check back.
Video from the Israeli Defense Force shows a fighter jet engaging a new suicide drone launched from inside Gaza. Please take note in the video of the AUDIO from the aircraft warning system, warning the pilot he is flying too low; it says “ALTITUDE – ALTITUDE” which gives viewers an indication of why these drones are now successfully evading (then destroying) Iron Dome missile launch sites. The drones fly too low for Iron Dome to engage them!
Israel is now calling-up seven-thousand (7,000) military Reserve troops and ALL LEAVE CANCELED for combat troops, over a possible ground invasion against Gaza. If Israel cannot put a fast halt to the suicide drone strikes, their military will be decimated.
