Iran Successfully Employed At Least Seven Combat UAVs To Pound ISIS Positions In Syria Following Ballistic Missile Strike

Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) employed at least seven unmanned combat aerial vehicles (UCAVs) to pound ISIS positions in Syria following a ballistic missile strike carried out by the IRGC earlier on October 1. According to the IRGC, UCAVs attacked HQs and gatherings of the “mercenaries of global arrogance”.

The employed aircraft are most likely Thunderbolt UCAVs produced by Shahed Aviation Industries. The Thunderbolt is based on a US-made RQ-170 UAV, which was reverse-engineered by Iranian specialists.


The Iranian strikes on ISIS targets on Syria were described by the IRGC as a response to the terrorist attack carried out by ISIS in the Iranian city of Ahvaz on September 22.
