(Era of Wisdom) On Tuesday and Wednesday, ISIS hit the Syrian Arab Army with drone strikes in the eastern Qalamoun Mountains and Syrian Desert. That’s right: ISIS is using drones now.

According to AMN:

“The terrorist group’s official media wing, Al-‘Amaq, released images before the attack and then the aftermath of the strike in west Palmyra.

This is not the first time that ISIS has used these types of drones; in fact, in the Deir Ezzor Governorate, the terrorist group often uses an unmanned aircraft to carry out attacks against the Syrian Arab Army in the densely populated neighborhoods of the provincial capital.”

Headlines from recent and not so recent warn about ISIS drones potentially launching chemical attacks, airstrikes, and even exploding drones. However, they are mostly being used for gathering information.

While it has mostly been reported that ISIS is using hobby drones and less serious ones than the US, how long is it until they get a General Atomics Predator or Reaper drone replica?

After a leaked Hillary Clinton email tangibly admitted ISIS is being funded by Saudi Arabia and Qatar, who the US supplies with weapons, it would be wise for us to question just how ISIS is able to acquire such things.

Why would ISIS be so determined to attack Syria as the US just happens to have wanted regime change in Syria for decades? We must question who is really funding them and what the situation is now with all the changes in the geopolitical landscape.
