Syrian Army Shoots Down 3 ISIS Drones Loaded with Bombs in Deir Ezzor

According to a field report from Deir Ezzor, soldiers of the Syrian Arab Army protecting this city in eastern Syria managed to shoot down 3 drones of the ISIS that were flying over Tal Sannouf hill.

This is definitely not the first time that SAA shoots down enemy's drones. However, what draws attention in this particular case is that these 3 drones shot down on Saturday were loaded with improvised bombs. Pictures below show the remnants of one of the drones:

As it can be seen on the photos, improvised bombs attached to the drones were made of grenades for an anti-tank grenade launcher (most likely Soviet RPG-7).

According to the reports coming from Deir Ezzor city, ISIS uses such armed drones more and more often desperately looking for any possibilities to penetrate SAA's defensive positions, Alamsdar reported.
