1. Use a Russian-made “Skygrabber” device to infiltrate the drone’s waves and frequencies. This will allow you to know the drone’s mission.

2. Use radio transmitters to jam the frequencies used to control the drone and disrupt the GPS signal. “The Mujahideen have had successful experiments using the Russian-made ‘Racal’ device.”

4. Use a group of skilled snipers to hunt and shoot down drones. Focus on the reconnaissance drones because they fly closer to the ground, often as low as 6 kilometers or less.

6. Jam electronic communication devices by running old equipment — with strong frequencies — at all times. These are tactics “similar to [those] used by the Yugoslav army when they used the microwave [oven] to attract and confuse the NATO missiles.”

20. Use natural barricades like forests and caves when there is an urgent need for training or gathering for a meeting.
