Canada enacts new sanctions against Iran over drones for Russia and human rights

In a statement released on Wednesday, the foreign ministry of Canada said it had placed new sanctions on Iran that were directed at individuals it said were involved in suspected human rights abuses and organizations it claimed were providing drones to Russia for use in Ukraine.

This is Canada’s seventh set of sanctions against Iran this year. According to the foreign ministry, it is aimed at six people and two firms, Shahed Aviation Industries and Qods Aviation Industries.

According to the ministry, Shahed Aviation manufactures drones used by Russian forces to strike Ukrainian civilians and facilities, whereas Qods Aviation manufactures drones for Iran’s military and armed forces such as Hezbollah, and designs drones for Russian use in Ukraine.

In a statement, Canadian Foreign Minister @melaniejoly said, “Canada will not hesitate to utilize all diplomatic means at its disposal to respond to the Iranian regime’s aggressions, whether in Iran or abroad.”
