Hizballah, ISIS using exploding drones in Syria, Iraq

A booby-trapped drone that had been shot down in Iraq exploded as it was being examined by French and Kurdish troops. A spokesman for the US-led coalition in Iraq, Col. John Dorrian, said Wednesday that two of the Kurds were killed and several French soldiers were injured in the blast at a coalition base near Irbil. He called the incident a "Trojan horse-style attack". Meanwhile, a video examined by US intelligence showed a Hizballah drone armed with an explosive device diving, crashing into a position of the Jabhat Fatah al-Sham group, and exploding near the Syrian city of Aleppo.
