IDF to use unmanned jeeps in conflict with Gaza militants
By Haaretz Staff and Channel 10
The Israel Defense Forces are set to introduce an unmanned jeep into the ongoing conflict with Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip.
While pilotless drones are already common in the Israel Air Force, this is the first time a driverless jeep will be used by the army’s ground forces.
Elbit Systems and Israel Aerospace Industries jointly developed the guardian for the IDF, and it is expected to be deployed this summer along the security fence with the Gaza Strip, replacing many manned vehicles.
