US sanctions Iranian drone companies


The US Treasury imposed sanctions on Friday against officials linked to an Iranian military equipment manufacturer that designs and manufactures unmanned aerial vehicles that have been used in the Ukraine war, as well as the director of the “key organization responsible for overseeing the programs of Iran’s ballistic missiles”.

The new US sanctions hit “six executives and board members of Qods Aviation Industries” and the director of Iran’s Space Industries Organization, according to a Treasury press release.

“We will continue to use every tool at our disposal to deny Putin the weapons he is using to wage his barbaric and unprovoked war against Ukraine,” Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said in a statement.

According to a Ukrainian intelligence assessment, parts made by more than a dozen American and Western companies were found inside a single Iranian Shahed-136 drone shot down in Ukraine last fall.

In December, the White House created an administration-wide task force to investigate how American and Western technology — ranging from smaller devices like semiconductors and GPS modules to larger parts like engines — ended up in Iranian drones. .

Otherwise, Russia has launched an unjustifiable invasion of the Ukrainian state on February 24, causing casualties and material damage.
