US Supply Terrorists with UAV

According to Inside Syria Media Center sources, for the past month the Syrian Army downed more than 20 drones of Jabhat Al-Nusra. It was American- made Switchblade kamikaze drones, which are used by the U.S. Army.
Previously, the militants attacked the government forces using these drones in Hama province, but a group of UAV was noticed in time and destroyed. Another attack took place last May on the border of Sweida and Daraa province as well as in Latakia. There also were no victims.
It should be mentioned that Switchblade is loitering munition. The drone is launched from a portable installation, have a limited range of only 10 kilometers and automatically aim at the target.
According to American Defense One resource, the U.S. Special Operations Command, or SOCOM ordered 350 Switchblades, tube-launched drones outfitted with cameras and cursor-on-target GPS navigation to fight ISIS both in Syria and Iraq. However it is clear where the ordered drones were actually sent.
In addition, to use Switchblade drones it is necessary to complete special trainings. Unlikely simply seizing this weapon, the radicals could successfully use it against the Syrian Army. These facts again proof that Washington continuous financing terrorists and supplying them with new types of weapons.
