Iran Bans Private Drones From Flying Over Tehran

Posted by at 10:24 am on February 20, 2017

Iran has banned privately-owned drones from flying over Tehran after at least two devices were shot at in recent weeks over security fears.

Licences will now only be granted to “relevant bodies and not individuals”, military officials said in a report by the BBC.

The unmanned aerial devices have caused several security scares after approaching sensitive areas.

Drones have become increasingly popular in Tehran, but have angered locals who believe they infringe their privacy.


Officials said on Monday that permits must now be obtained for all drones, but they will not be issued to individuals.
