Alain Shikhani has only turned away one customer over the course of his three years of selling drones in Lebanon.As for the impressive order, Shikhani never had to follow through as the customer never returned.Lebanese drone traders said they were prepared to comply with the Lebanese Army's warning Wednesday to verify the identities of customers, after the military confiscated one vehicle allegedly on its way to militants in east Lebanon.
