Iranian drones are emerging as the major new threat of 2021. Israel Defense Minister Benny Gantz revealed that Iran has attempted to transfer weapons using drones from Syria. He also revealed Iranian bases where UAVs are based in Chabahar and Qeshm in Iran. This comes in the wake of revelations in September about Iran training drone operators. At the time he said that “Iran is training militias from Iraq, Yemen, Lebanon and Syria to employ advanced UAVs, in a base called Kashan.”

The Iranian drone threat has been around for many years. In 2019 the Islamic Republic used drones and cruise missiles to attack Saudi Arabia’s massive Abqaiq energy facility. Iran transferred drone technology to the Houthi rebels in Yemen, to Hamas, the Shi’ite militias in Iraq, and also to Hezbollah.
