This paper reflects on some of the legal issues applicable to the use of drones with particular emphasis on the application of the existing International Humanitarian Law framework on the on the regulation of their use. It offers an assessment of the current justification of their use within the current framework and demonstrates how the killing by drone has become an accepted and permissible method of targeted killing with no satisfactory answer for the legality of their use. The main objective of this paper it to reinforce the argument argue that in the interest of finding a practical solution to control use, the debate about the legality of killing by drone needs to move beyond the debate about the legality of targeted killing in general and consider instead the issue of the specific regulation of use.
