DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:25 P.M.) – The so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s” (ISIS) drone bombs have proven ineffective against Syrian military targets in Deir Ezzor, despite their continued use after failing to eliminate their targets.

Instead of targeting Syrian military targets, the Islamic State militants have now turned their attention to the civilian population in Deir Ezzor, dropping bombs on several neighborhoods that are densely populated in order to terrorize the residents.

On Monday, the Islamic State militants dropped several bombs over the government-held districts, killing as many as 6 civilians and wounding 22 other bystanders, a military official told Al-Masdar News today.

These drone bombs, while ineffective against military targets due to inaccuracy, have proven to be a new way for ISIS to harass residents in government-held districts, forcing the Syrian Army to have to reallocate their troops in order to shoot down the terrorist group’s unmanned aircraft.

Very clever from IS, as usual, as it’ll only motivate more civilians to take arms against them. In fact, terrorism may be effective when used with parsimony. When it becomes usual or goes too far, people aren’t terrorised anymore, they get bloodlust instead…
