French drone company Parrot has committed itself to supporting the mission of Human Rights Watch (HRW) by providing drones, software, and technical help in its investigations into human rights abuses throughout the world.

Recently, Parrot drones have been used by Human Rights Watch in its investigation of atrocities committed by ISIS in northern Syria.

The focus of its investigation was on the al-Hota gorge, the suspected site of a mass grave used by ISIS. Using Parrot’s drones, the HRW team was able to capture aerial footage of the bottom of the gorge, providing clear evidence that bodies had been dumped there.
