The Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control
(OFAC) designated eight senior executives of Paravar Pars, the

The drone maker was previously sanctioned by the United States

Revolutionary Guard Corps Aerospace Force.

vehicles) for Iran's IRGC and military,” said Brian Nelson, the US
Treasury's top sanctions official.

reported to OFAC, the Treasury Department said. People that engage
in transactions with the individuals designated on Friday may
themselves be exposed to sanctions, the department added.
