Israel Air Force unveils drone

The Israel Air Force unveiled a new unmanned surveillance drone. The
long-range Heron, which is manufactured by the state-owned Israel Aerospace
Industries, was inaugurated Wednesday at the Palmachim air base.
Independent experts said the Heron already saw action during last year’s
Lebanon war and over the West Bank and Gaza Strip, and that it may be capable of
carrying missiles for track-and-kill missions against terrorist leaders. Israel
has not commented on whether its Air Force drones are armed.
