The United States has imposed sanctions against companies and individuals related to Iran’s unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) programs. The sanctions include the commander of the military drone unit of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) who was responsible for the drone attack three months ago on the Mercer Street vessel, which was off the coast of Oman at the time — an assault that ratcheted up tensions in the region, prompted unified outcry from the G7 coalition of nations, and vows from the US of a coordinated response.
