(Scroll down for video) People across Israel were able to see dozens of drones flying in the sky with Israeli flags in support of the troops, the Tazpit News Agency reported.
On Friday, people who belong to the Facebook group, DJI Israel, flew their drones in the Latrun region of the country in a unique show of support for IDF soldiers and residents of southern Israel.
The operators of the drones, a group of people who fly quadcopters both professionally and as a hobby, attached Israeli flags to the devices and flew them in different junctions across Israel.
“We came together for this operation in order to show support for the people of Israel, and especially for the IDF,” Shiran Granot said.
“The idea hit me when I drove down a highway this morning, and saw people waving flags in support of our troops. I thought ‘why not attach flags to our drones and fly them over the highway,’” Granot added.
“We had a great time with our drones. When we flew them over Highway 1, the main Jerusalem to Tel Aviv highway, people honked their horns for us and gave us some great feedback,” Granot concluded.
