Foreign forces in Afghanistan will use unmanned Israeli drones more extensively in the US-led war, an Israeli paper said, citing the regime's desire to be more involved in the war.
The Jerusalem Post reported Thursday that Germany will become the fifth country whose troops in Afghanistan will operate Israeli drones as of next week.
The German military is expected to take delivery of an undisclosed number of Israeli made surveillance-geared Heron unmanned drones, the newspaper said.
Another Israeli daily, Ha'aretz, wrote in March that Israeli-built drones have been flying in Iraqi and Afghan skies for the last three years.
The Afghan government has not commented on the report.
