BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:45 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham have obtained at least 100 armed drones from a Turkish merchant, the Sputnik News Agency reported on Monday.
Citing local sources, Sputnik reported that the drones were transported from Turkey to the jihadist-held town of Harem, which is located near the Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham stronghold of Ma’arat Al-Masreen.
The Sputnik report said that the drones were handed over to jihadist rebels of Libyan and Moroccan descent.
“Terrorists are working under the supervision of a British expert to make modifications on the drones to become lighter and to able to carry small shells loaded with toxic chemical substances,” the report said.
Prior to this delivery, jihadists from Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham transported 200 drones to the town of Sarmada in August of this year.
