Tehran uses off-the-shelf components to build armed drones used in attacks that challenge the U.S. and its allies in the Middle East
The Wall Street Journal, October 6, 2021

A deadly attack on an oil tanker by explosive-laden drones. Unmanned aircraft launched from the Gaza Strip hitting Israeli neighborhoods. Strikes on Saudi Arabian refineries and pipelines and on bases housing U.S. troops in Iraq.
Behind this wave of attacks, U.S., European and Israeli defense officials say: Iran and its allies across the Middle East. They say Tehran’s rapidly developing ability to build and deploy drones is changing the security equation in a region already on edge.

The drones themselves are often made with widely available components used in the ever-growing commercial drone market and by hobbyists, the officials say. Some mimic the designs of Israeli and American military drones.

iranian quds forceIranian Quds Force’s incitement of regional war and terrorism
Weeklyblitz, October 1, 2021

The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Quds Force is chiefly using various unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for its terrorist operations as well as for supplying its proxies in the region. To an extent, the regime is trying to compensate for its outdated and decrepit Air Force with this technology, said National Council of Resistance of Iran in a recently released document. It said, Drones are one of the primary weapons used by the Iranian regime to export terrorism and warmongering, which is why, over the past decade, Tehran has invested heavily in drone production despite drastic economic challenges.

To produce UAVs, the clerical regime smuggles some of the main parts, such as engines and electronic components, from foreign countries; other required components are produced in various industries within Iran.

Iran Protests & More

Iran Focus, October 7, 2021

Social crises in Iran are increasing daily, and those who hurt most and without any support under the mullahs’ rule are Iran’s women.

Recently it has been seen that some women in the country’s metropolis are searching for their daily income on the streets. These women are mostly resorting to scrounging garbage and are cardboard sleepers who are risking their health in such jobs to have the opportunity of one meal per day.
These women suffering from poverty believe that a job that is not prostitution is good because they are not dealing with their dignity and health, and unfortunately in a country like Iran where the last concern of the government is the people, this can be only by collecting garbage from the streets in runoffs and the city’s trash.
