Syrian-Made Drones Spy on Rebel Strongholds

(Ynet News) Ron Ben-Yishai - Unmanned aircraft reportedly operating over Syrian and Turkish territory are Syrian, Ynet has learned.

The Syrian army, as well as Hizbullah, also operates Iranian-made drones, including the Ababil, which can carry explosives. Rebels told foreign news agencies that they have downed a number of these drones. Some of the drones were recovered in Homs after Assad's forces forced rebels to withdraw. These drones are apparently the ones Syria is now presenting as "proof" that Israel is aiding the rebels.
