Israel ordered a fleet of spy drones to help monitor Palestinian terrorists in the Gaza Strip. Israel Aircraft Industries said Monday that it had received a $50 million order for Heron unmanned aerial vehicles. Security sources said that most of the aircraft would fly over Gaza to make up for intelligence lost on the ground after this week’s military pullout. Israel plans to continue controlling Gaza’s airspace and coastal waters.
