Syrian Army shoots down 3 ISIS drones loaded with bombs in Deir Ezzor

According to a field report from Deir Ezzor, soldiers of the Syrian Arab Army protecting this city in eastern Syria managed to shoot down 3 drones of the so-called "Islamic State of Iraq and Syria" (ISIS) that were flying over Tal Sannouf hill. -------

 This is definitely not the first time that SAA shoots down enemy's drones. However, what draws attention in this particular case is that these 3 drones shot down on Saturday were loaded with improvised bombs. Pictures below show the remnants of one of the drones: --------

 As it can be seen on the photos, improvised bombs attached to the drones were made of grenades for an anti-tank grenade launcher (most likely Soviet RPG-7). -----------

 According to the reports coming from Deir Ezzor city, ISIS uses such armed drones more and more often desperately looking for any possibilities to penetrate SAA's defensive positions.
