An interesting video from the Israeli police, filmed on or around August 19, 2020, shows the “Light Blade” laser defense system popping an improvised aerial explosive device before it can reach residential areas.
The system had only been deployed days before the video was taken and reportedly shot down 32 balloons to which combustibles and explosives were attached. Terrorists have used kites, balloons, and condoms to set multiple fires and cause property damage. Israel now has a tool to mitigate that threat.
