In recent days, Israeli officials have proposed a sentence in response to the media: “The security services continue to work anytime and anywhere to prevent threats against Israel.” they are asked about the destruction of Iranian drone sites and warehouses in Lebanon and Syria, as far west as Iran, and the goal is not to answer positively or negatively.

The Iranian-Israeli confrontation continues in various forms and has clearly begun to rely on the drone system in its various guises. In Lebanon, an Israeli commando infiltrated a Hezbollah area and quietly destroyed hundreds of drones in a warehouse, and the task force left the area despite the presence of Hezbollah elements there, including the militia leader’s guards. Hassan Nasrallah, who was present that night in one of the houses near the warehouse.

A few days later, on February 13, the militias crossed the Lebanese-Israeli border with a drone in an attempt to attack one of the military bases, but the rapid intervention of the Israeli planes and their mock raids on the Israeli deployment areas Hezbollah in the southern suburbs of Beirut, incited the militias to stop these movements.

A day later, the drones launched an incursion into Iran, causing damage to the Iranian drone system, and estimates confirm that hundreds of drones of different sizes were completely destroyed. Also, on March 7, two Iranian Revolutionary Guards officers were killed at a site near the Syrian capital, Damascus, who specialized in precision missile and drone training.

In an interview with 24, a security observer indicated that Iran continues to build an arsenal of marches and equip its various proxies in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, and the Gaza Strip with these techniques to start battles and threaten countries. region of. and basically prepare for a war on the shores of the Mediterranean in Syria, Lebanon and the Gaza Strip.

The source points to security estimates that, prior to the destruction of its warehouses, Hezbollah possessed close to 2,000 drones of various types and sizes, most of which were off-the-shelf kits that could be purchased online, and the purchase it was carried out by agents who lived in Western countries.

It seems that the increasing use of drone swarms is also an indication of the future of wars, especially for countries like Iran who realize that they cannot create a classical air force that can take on Israeli Air Force planes. So they turned to drones.

It is not possible to stop the development, production and deployment of Iran’s drone army, but allies in the region can work together to disrupt and challenge these operations. This includes the use of advanced protection systems and the launching of attacks against targets linked to the drone army, according to what the monitoring source sees.
