A United Nations report on a military conflict in Libya in March 2020 stated that lethal autonomous weapons system (LAWS) drones, known to fly to specific locations, select targets, and kill without the help of a remote-controlled human operator, made their war debut.
It was deployed during a fight between the United Nations-recognised Government of National Accord and forces allied with Gen. Khalifa Haftar.
The report did not say whether the LAWS killed anyone during the attack.
Instead, the U.N. stated: “The lethal autonomous weapons systems were programmed to attack targets without requiring data connectivity between the operator and the munition: in effect, a true ‘fire, forget and find’ capability.”
