Iran’s dissidents have warned of the use of drones by the regime to destabilize the region, saying it is using technology and equipment imported from China to weaken its air force.
Iran’s National Council of Resistance (NCRI), an umbrella group of Iranian opposition groups, released evidence at a news conference that showed the production and use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UACs) for terrorist activities and its support.

Alireza Zafarazadeh, deputy director of the Washington office, said: “Our announcement today is important to Iran’s National Resistance Council, Fox News.”
The group alleges that a web of industry has been used by the regime to produce materials or smuggle dollars abroad because of the economic sanctions imposed by the Trump administration, as well as home-based protests and challenges to tackling the Covid-1 pandemic epidemic.
The NCRI report alleges that at least one operation, Gazanfar Roknabadi Industries, provided support and training for the International Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) factories and used raw materials imported from the Chinese communist regime.
The group’s investigation also found that a special drone complex, with a special drone unit, has been in place since 2019 – which includes the reproduction of light and quiet drones. The drones were then transported in pieces and moved as part of efforts to control the country’s borders.
These two factories are being used as part of the drone project claimed by the NCRI and a project that also includes the regime’s UAV command – one of the branches of the regime’s air force.

The drones have been used in a variety of ways, including identifying and attacking Syrian opposition forces and assisting the Houthis in Yemen to use drones in their attacks against Saudi-backed forces.
The group also said that the IRGC had made extensive use of drones inside Iraq “for militant groups such as the Al-Nujaba group” – which demonstrated its UAV capabilities during the parade.
The NCRI, which has long called for a democratic and secular Iran, urged countries not to lift any more sanctions on the regime unless they stop its aggressive behavior.
“The time has come for the United States, Europe and countries in the region to expand sanctions and adopt a stronger policy. [President Ebrahim] Rice and [Ayatollah] Tehran will hold Khamenei accountable until it stops its atrocities and ends human rights abuses, “Zafarzadeh said.
The Biden administration has indicated that it wants to rejoin the controversial 2015 Iran nuclear deal, from which the United States withdrew in 2018, and talks are under way in Vienna to bring both sides back to international agreement.
