Palestinian demonstrators have downed an Israeli surveillance drone during their weekly March of Return protest in which Tel Aviv forces killed two youths and injured hundreds of people.
According to RT on Saturday, the protesters were able to take down the Israeli surveillance drone which was attempting to map out their location and movements.
The Israeli military has confirmed the incident, claiming that “there is no fear of leakage of information.”
According to reports the drone was hit and downed with a projectile fired via sling shot.
On past occasions Israeli troops have used drones to disperse tear gas among Palestinian protesters.
The Israeli military also frequently uses drones over the Gaza Strip either to monitor and photograph Palestinian military units in the blockaded enclave, or launch aerial attacks against pre-planned fixed targets.
