Iran and UAE drones used in Sudan war, evidence suggests

A recent BBC investigation has shed light on the involvement of Iran and the United Arab Emirates in the ongoing civil war in Sudan. The two countries have been accused of violating a UN arms embargo by supplying drones to warring factions in the conflict.

The investigation revealed that the Sudanese Army is using Iranian drones in their fight against the Rapid Support Forces (RSF), while evidence suggests that the RSF has received modified commercial drones from the UAE. These foreign-made drones have significantly impacted the course of the war on the ground since their introduction in 2023.

The conflict between the Sudanese armed forces and the RSF has been raging on for the past 14 months, with both sides receiving outside support in the form of advanced weaponry. The BBC reached out to the Sudanese army, Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Qeshm Fars Air for comment on the allegations, but has yet to receive a response.

This revelation raises concerns about the escalation of violence in the Sudan civil war due to external interference. As the situation continues to unfold, it is crucial for the international community to closely monitor and address the source of weaponry being used in the conflict.
