Iran’s Advances in Drone Tech Poses Threat to Gulf States

Arming Regional Terror

Iran has been arming a number of proxy militias since the Islamic Revolution of 1979 in an attempt to assert regional domination and spread its influence. The signing of the Iran Nuclear Deal providing $150 billion of frozen funds to the Islamic Republic has allowed it to continue exporting oil around the world—and increasing its funding for terror networks in Syria, Yemen, Iraq, and Lebanon.

Increased Threats to Gulf States

The predominantly Sunni Gulf States have long tried to stave off Iranian hegemony in the region. Iran’s military advances, clearly meant to propel its apocalyptic agenda of blackmailing the West and exerting as much influence as possible over neighboring states was substantially buoyed by the Nuclear Deal and lifting of sanctions. Despite the current US administration’s attempts to undermine Iran, the EU has done everything in its power to stymie the Americans.

In 2015, the Iranian-backed Houthi militia led a coup d’état in Yemen replacing president Hadi and forcing the country’s government into exile. Saudi Arabia retaliated by forming a coalition of Gulf States to fight the Houthis. The civil war in Yemen has raged on for the past three years claiming thousands of lives and displacing hundreds of thousands of civilians from their homes. The Gulf States have plenty of reasons for concern as a result of the latest developments.

Iran has placed special focus on advancing its military technology. On December 4th, 2011, Iranian forces captured an American Sentinel drone flying a mission over its territory. It has reportedly managed to create exact replicas of the UAV, supplying it to Hezbollah and the Houthis who also happen to possess other Iranian-made drones which they have used to attack coalition troops.
