Reply To: What are some of the advantages and disadvantages of the use of UAV weaponry in the Near East? How do you think technological advancements will continue to shape warfare globally?

Hello Dan,
I agree that rogue groups in the region could continue to use these UAV weaponry to attack nations states in and outside the Near East. Furthermore your ideas made me think of a possibility of an actor such as Hezbollah using these weapons to attack Israel. By attaching a nuclear weapon to a drone given by Iran would be the best possible way to attack Israel from the north or possibly launching one from Yemen from the Southern Hijaz. Just like when Israel in the Six Day War used the Red Sea to fly its jets low to the ground/sea not to get detected by Egyptian radar. Therefore UAV tech gives another tool for rivals to launch attacks on one another.
