Iran to use UAVs to guard its borders

The drones are to carry out reconnaissance missions in the desert areas of the eastern Iran near Afghan border.



Tehran: Iran has plans to equip all of its border areas with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) within next few months, said Iran`s police chief Esmail Ahmadi-Moqaddam said on Sunday, Xinhua reported.

In Tehran, nine remote-controlled drones have already been purchased, and ten others will be bought in the near future, Ahmadi-Moqaddam told reporters.

The commander added that the police aviation personnel were receiving training to operate the drones, a Press TV report said.
The drones are to carry out reconnaissance missions in the desert areas of the eastern Iran near the border with Afghanistan, as part of Iran`s campaign against narcotics and drug-trafficking, Ahmadi-Moqaddam was quoted as saying.
