Following the surge in drone use by suspected militants in Indian-Administered Kashmir, Indian security forces remain on high alert for what has become a potent threat in conflicts across South Asia. Two IED-laden drones detonated over an Indian air base, injuring Air Force personnel in the process. A mere 24 hours passed before drones were once again spotted over another military base, before fleeing under fire. The incidents sparked enough concern to warrant the imposition of UAV bans across various Kashmiri cities. Though such situations have become normalized in modern conflict, drone use within India’s borders represents a significant shift in stratagem by separatists and their alleged state sponsors.
