Israel drops tear gas on Palestinians using drones for the first time (VIDEO)
Some 200 Gazans had gathered on Friday at the border fence with Israel as part of a weekly protest against the ten-year blockade when an unmanned aerial vehicle approached the scene. Footage from the Lebanese Al-Mayadeen news agency shows the drone dropping canisters of tear gas on the protesters who can then be seen running blindly from the scene.

The Gazan Health Ministry said that at least two people were wounded in the clashes, with at least eight other Gazans injured by Israeli fire during protests elsewhere in the coastal enclave.
According to military sources, the usage of drones to fire tear gas is still experimental and has not yet been made operational.
