A senior Iranian commander says border guards have begun testing unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for patrolling the country’s eastern borders.

“The implementation of this project has begun in South Khorasan and Sistan and Baluchestan Provinces, and multiple daily flights are conducted to evaluate the performance of the drones,” Border Guard Commander Brigadier General Hossein Zolfaqari said on Sunday.

He added that upon the completion of the pilot project, Iranian border guards will use UAVs to patrol borders.
