The U.K. and the U.S. have been spying on Israeli drones, according to new documents released by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden.
On Friday, The Intercept published a series of photos leaked from the "Anarchist" program, a joint operation between the NSA and Britain's Government Communications Headquarters.
According to the leaked documents, Anarchist operated from a British Air Force base in Cyprus, intercepting video feeds from drones flying in the region. Many of those videos were from Israeli drones — including several images of drones apparently armed with missiles.
