The Israeli military is using drones to protect gas fields in the Mediterranean Sea.

The unmanned aerial vehicles are conducting surveillance and reconnaissance missions after pledges from Hezbollah that it would protect Lebanon’s claims to the areas, The Jerusalem Post reported.

Israel’s Cabinet in July approved Israel’s northern maritime border with Lebanon, thus laying claim to a large natural gas field.

The drones allow the Israeli Air Force to maintain a 24-hour-a-day presence on the site.
