The IDF stated that "Self Driven Logistics" is an advanced operational system that facilitates precise airdrop of supplies, autonomously guiding itself to ground forces with accurate navigation capabilities. This marks the first operational use of this system and the first operational airdrop since the Second Lebanon War.
Additionally, the military highlighted that one of the unique operational capabilities of the 98th Division is its ability to operate independently in situations where ground supply is not feasible.

"A unique aspect of the 98th Division is the ability to provide logistics even when there's no direct land access," a senior officer said. "We know how to reach our forces by air, sea, or any means necessary. We will operate and do whatever it takes to ensure our troops have everything they need to decisively eliminate Hamas."
