MHAC is concerned that military drone operations are being supported by intelligence gathered by US military bases in the UK. There is good evidence to believe that drone strikes exacerbate tensions and facilitate the recruitment of militants. The noise from drones flying over areas for long periods of time is a source of stress to all living in the area. Drone pilots are now being reported as suffering from post traumatic stress disorder, possibly because they exposed to high definition pictures of the damage caused in strikes to people, animals and homes.
