Azerbaijani Armed Forces have used the latest kamikaze drone «Harop», production of Israel Aerospace Industries Israel Corporation (IAI) in Nagorno-Karabakh conflict.

The IAI Harop  is an unmanned combat air vehicle (UCAV) developed by the MBT division of Israel Aerospace Industries. Rather than holding a separate high-explosive warhead, the drone itself is the main munition. This SEAD-optimised UCAV is designed to loiter the battlefield and attack targets by self-destructing into them. It has been designed to minimize its radar-signature (low-observability).

The Armenian Ministry of Defense spokesman informed that Israeli-made suicide drone hit a bus carrying Armenian soldiers and then exploded, on the north direction of the contact line of Karabakh and Azerbaijani forces. As a result of the impact caused by the Azerbaijani combat unmanned aerial vehicle killed at least five people.
