Israel, which specializes in making fighter drone aircraft, has done another feat. Dozens of drones were seen flying in the sky over the Israeli city of Tel Aviv on Monday. These drone planes carried ice cream, beer and sushi (specially cooked rice) across the city. The National Drone Initiative, a government program in Israel, conducted an exercise to prepare for a world in which large quantities of commercial supplies would be used by drones to ease the pressure on highly congested city streets.
The two-year program aims to harness the capabilities of Israeli drone companies to establish a nationwide network. Under this, customers can order goods and they can be delivered to the designated place. This is the third phase of the eight-phase project and it is still in its infancy. There are still many security and logistics related questions facing this project.

Daniela Partem of the Israel Innovation Authority, a participant in this drone initiative, said, “The drone was flight tested 700 times earlier this year and now that number has increased to 9,000.” Israel is a world leader in drone technology and its expertise is a high-tech military. Many of the 16 companies participating in the drone initiative have ties to the military. According to Partem, this initiative was inspired by the impact on the transportation of medical supplies due to Covid-19 in early 2020. In the initial phase, drones were used to transport drugs and blood plasma.
Let us tell you that Israel specializes in making fighter drone aircraft and these drones helped Azerbaijan a lot in the war with Armenia. The Indian Army has intensified its preparations in Ladakh amid rising tensions between India and China. India has purchased 4 Heron Mark-2 drones from Israel. India has already been using Heron drones but these 4 drones are upgraded versions and can also be fitted with laser guided bombs and missiles. It is believed that India will deploy this drone in Ladakh. An agreement was signed in January this year for the Israeli drone aircraft, but the planes could not be found due to the Corona crisis. Now Israel can deliver two Heron Mark 2 drone aircraft in the next two to three months. Two more drone aircraft can be found by the end of the year.
