India Made Drones Being Sent To Israel
HYDERABAD (IANS) – India’s first private drone manufacturing facility here, has made significant strides in establishing India as a defense manufacturing hub. The facility has now supplied more than 20 Hermes 900 medium-altitude, long-endurance (MALE) UAVs to Israel.
The Adani-Elbit Advanced Systems India Ltd, has become the first entity outside of Israel to manufacture the Hermes 900. It is not being used by the Israeli defense forces in Gaza.
These UAVs, equipped with high-performance sensors, have proven instrumental in detecting ground or maritime targets across a wide spectral range and can execute ground target attacks.
In a parallel situation, the Dutch government is looking into a court order to put a stop to the export of F-35 fighter jet parts to Israel, as it could violate international laws, according to Reuters.
