ATTACK OF THE DRONES - ISRAEL USES PILOTLESS AIRCRAFT TO BLAST MISSLE LAUNCHING THUGS

Israel has unveiled a new weapon in their war against Palestinian terror - aircraft attack drones:
Israel the past two weeks has been utilizing a secret device to counter the growing threat of mortars and Qassam rockets Hamas regularly launches at the Jewish communities of Gaza – a pilotless drone that identifies and takes out militants and their equipment before they can fire the rockets, senior Israeli security sources told WND.

The Israel Air Force Monday fired three missiles at two teams of Palestinian militants planning a mortar attack in a Gaza refugee camp. Palestinian residents told reporters Israeli drones fired the missiles near where a group of militants was gathering.

[...]

The officials wouldn't identify the exact drone Israel has been using, but said it is a modified version of a model similar to America's MQ-1 Predator, a system guided by a ground control station that receives several real-time video feeds from sensors located on the drone as well as images from a Predator-linked satellite.

The Israeli drone, which can remain in the air for up to 24 hours, is equipped with a color nose camera, a daytime-applicable TV lens, a variable infrared camera for low light and night, and a synthetic radar for looking through smoke, clouds or haze. The cameras produce full motion video as well as still frame radar images.

Finally. I am so upset that the media has simply covered up the fact that the Palestinians are attacking Israel EVERY DAY with missles. There is absolutely no coverage of this. The MSM acts like theres some sort of cease fire in place when that is the furthest thing from the truth!
