South Sudan on Tuesday launched air surveillance drones operated by an Israel Company that would help improve security around Juba in line with the vision of smart city.

According to President Salva Kiir, with the launch, he has achieved his promise in February 2016 of implementing the smart city in the war-torn country.

South Sudan descended into violence in December 2013 after political dispute between Kiir and his former deputy turned rebel chief Riek Machar led to split within the Sudan People’s Liberation Army (SPLA), leaving soldiers to fight alongside ethnic lines.

The 2015 peace agreement to end the conflict was weakened after the outbreak of renewed fighting in July 2016 caused the SPLA-in opposition rebel leader Machar to flee the capital.
