“Defensive preparedness” will be part of the new school curriculum, according to General Ali Fazli, commander of the Basij militia.

What does this entail?

“The hunting of spy drones … is an example of this change of content,” Fazli said. The course will be taught by members of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards paramilitary units.

The Associated Press reports that Fazli did not elaborate but the plan suggests students would be taught how to track and bring down drone aircraft by hacking their computer systems.

The plan does have it’s critics.

“How are the children going to down drones – with slingshots?” Meir Javedanfar, an Iranian-born lecturer at the Interdisciplinary Centre in Herzliya in Israel, said.

“The main goal isn’t to teach children to bring down UAVs [unmanned aerial vehicles], it will be how to brainwash them that America is Iran’s eternal enemy and that peace with America will be detrimental to Iran.”
