The Islamic Military Coalition to Combat Terrorism held today at its headquarters in Riyadh a lecture entitled (UAVs) presented by the Chief of Operations of the US Central Command, Major General Pilot P.S.C. Alexus Greenkiewicz, in the presence of the Secretary-General of the designated coalition, Major General Muhammad bin Saeed Al-Mughidi, and representatives of member states and members of the coalition.
General Alexus pointed out that drones are a source of threat to the national security of many countries due to their spread, low cost of purchase, ease of manufacture, and the extent of the damage they can cause.
He explained that many countries manufacture such types of aircraft in addition to commercial companies that manufacture and sell them for purposes Commercial, and General Alexos added that the danger of such aircraft lies in converting them from commercial and civilian use to military purposes used by terrorist groups.
He pointed out that many countries and governments are not satisfied with producing this technology but in addition to exporting it and providing their agents in other countries with this technology for disruptive purposes.
He also explained the difficulty of defending such types of marches, as the programming of their launch makes it easier for terrorist groups to launch them from different destinations, and also the small size of these marches, which is one of the most important sources of danger, as the possibility of not being detected by radar devices due to their flying in a very low range.
He concluded his lecture that the necessity of preventing these attacks lies in monitoring the early reconnaissance of these marches in their storage places and launching them before using them, stressing the coordination and careful cooperation between the allied countries on realizing this danger and anticipating it early before it escalates, through cooperation and exchange of information and military experience, with the obligation of countries to work to monitor the industrial production of drones so that they do not fall into the hands of terrorist groups.
