Lebanese Army Sets Rules for Flying Drones
The Lebanese Army issued a warning for remote control drone owners urging them to get licenses for flying their vehicles and for drone photography, the Army Command-Orientation Directorate said in a statement on Wednesday.
The statement warned against the “threats of flying unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) over Lebanon's territories, mainly military centers and sensitive locations without a license issued by the Orientation Directorate.”
The statement said any drone flown illegally without meeting the requirements “will be brought down and owners will be legally prosecuted,” siting “serious risk to the official institutions, the security and public safety.”
The documents needed to register UAVs for aerial photography are available on the Lebanese army's website, it added.
