A U.S. airstrike in Syria killed Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, a senior strategist and spokesperson for the Islamic State. According to two U.S. officials who spoke with the New York Times, the strike was carried out by a drone and was the result of close collaboration between the CIA and Special Operations forces. The airstrike targeted a vehicle carrying al-Adnani near the northern city of Al-Bab.

The Federal Aviation Administration implemented its Part 107 regulations, which govern drone operations in the U.S. National Airspace System. The regulations establish flight procedures and pilot certification requirements for non-recreational drone use. In a press conference, FAA chief Michael Huerta said that the FAA intends to issue waivers for certain operations that are currently not permitted by Part 107, such as flying at night or over crowds. The agency expects 600,000 commercial drone operators to be airborne by the end of the year. (Wall Street Journal)
