As Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, advances into the now regime controlled territory of Aleppo they conduct a preparatory bombardment of a southern village using GRAD missiles. They record the entire strike on a drone and get instant feedback on the effectiveness of their attack. Prior to conducting the attack, they took aerial photos of the village, and circled all of their targets in red in a release to Twitter. Here is that image.
It is extremely interesting to note, that even while prominent drone companies like DJI have disabled their drones in these regions, the groups are continuing to work around the firmware updates and use the devices to conduct massive attacks like this one. You can read the statement from DJI about their drone updates in regions like Syria and Iraq at this link.
