Drones have become an integral part of modern warfare, providing forces with the ability to survey areas and attack from the air without risking the life of a pilot. However, for the communities in war-stricken areas, the incoming buzzing sound of a drone can be a terrifying experience. An article in The Washington Post has turned the spotlight onto Israel's use of drones in urban areas of Gaza, the war-torn Palestinian territory surrounded by Israel, Egypt, and the Mediterranean Sea. While the technology behind the drones is impressive — thermal imaging is used to spot smokers or cars that have been recently used, and the drones themselves can fly for up to 40 hours on a single charge — the article focuses on the human aspect, and how everyday lives are affected by these buzzing electrical aircraft.
