Drones: Changing the face of warfare in the Middle East

Non-state actors are changing the nature of warfare in the Middle East with their increasing use of commercial and military spec drones as they are becoming a key asset in their efforts to gather intelligence on battlefield positions and to attack or hinder allied troops during operations.

Defence IQ had the opportunity to gain a first-hand account on this issue from Colonel Amine Elkai, Chief of the Joint Intelligence Information Centre of the Lebanese Armed Forces and speaker at the inaugural Countering Drones Middle East. In this exclusive interview, he discusses how the use of drones by malicious actors has changed the face of warfare, how it directly affected the allied troops on the ground and what solutions are needed to tackle this.
