Gaza10Dec1NAZARETH (PNIC):-The Israeli occupation army revealed that it made its first use of drones last week to disperse Palestinian protesters near the border with the 1948 occupied Palestine.

Hebrew media sources reported that last Friday, as some 200 Gaza residents gathered for a protest near the border fence, a drone was used to drop tear gas and disperse the crowd.

The Israeli army said that the use of drones allows its forces to control protests from a safer distance, Haaretz newspaper reported.

According to military sources, this crowd-control method is still experimental and has not yet been made operational.

Dozens of Palestinians have been killed or injured by Israeli gunfire in protests launched along Gaza's eastern border fence on a weekly basis against the US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
