The Hezbollah media wing in Syria has released a video showing members of Kata’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada using combat unmanned aerial vehicles (UCAVs) against ISIS tartegs in Syrian Badia (the Syrian steppe).
Kata’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada is an Iraqi Shia militia formed in 2013 to protect “shrines across the globe” and to preserve “Iraqi unity”. The group is a part of the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) that are an official part of the Iraqi Armed Forces.
According to the data shown on the video, airstrikes are conducted byIranian-made Shahed-129 UCAVs.
It is not clear if the UCAVs are operated directly by Kata’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada. Experts believe that Shahed-129 UCAVs are likely operated directly from Iran. Meanwhile, Kata’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada members just call airstrikes on selected targets using reconnaissance drones.
