Video: Reported Hezbollah Weaponisation of Commercial Drones

This unverified video from Al Masdar News on YouTube (posted 9 Aug 16) is reported to show the Hezbollah group using weaponised commerical drones to the south of Aleppo in Syria.  In the final few seconds of the video, you can clearly see the height, release method and potential battle damage.


Whether the video is verifiable or not, it is worth considering how you might respond to such attacks in the tactical battlespace.  How would you place a STAP to identify these threats, and how might we counter them?
