Iran’s Drone Program faces Broad Penalties Unveiled by the US and UK.

Washington: In reaction to Iran’s strike on Israel over the weekend, the United States and the United Kingdom slapped broad penalties against the country’s military drone program on Thursday.
Regarding Iran’s unmanned aerial vehicle program, the Treasury Department said in a statement that Washington is focusing on “16 individuals and two entities enabling Iran’s UAV production, including engine types that power Iran’s Shahid variant UAVs, which were used in the April 13 attack.”
According to the Treasury Department, sanctions are also being imposed by the United Kingdom “targeting several Iranian military organizations, individuals, and entities involved in Iran’s UAV and ballistic missile industries.”

In response to an airstrike on the Iranian consulate in Damascus on April 1 that was generally attributed to Israel and resulted in the deaths of seven members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, including two generals, Tehran conducted its first-ever direct military attack on Israel late on Saturday.
Over 300 drones and missiles were used in the massive attack, most of which were shot down with minimal damage by Israel and its allies, the US and the UK.
Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel’s prime minister, responded to the attacks by saying that his country had the right to self-defense.
