The Telegraph reported on Saturday that ISIS have been using drones to attack civilians in the liberated areas of Mosul with bombs and other explosive devices.
The report explained that this may be some of the first instances of drones being used as attack vehicles, rather than its traditional use of surveillance.
“Until recently though there was little evidence they had developed their use further but a series of recent strikes has now confirmed that they have developed the capability to drop 40 millimeter grenades,” the report said.
Meanwhile, the report also corresponded with those directly affected.
“I was shopping with my family when a small plane belonging to the Islamic State dropped a grenade on us,” said Hussein, a 14 year old boy injured in the bombardment.
