Russia posted a satellite image that allegedly shows the deployment of the Iranian-made Khordad-3 air defense system near the Syrian-Lebanese border.
The Russian news agency provided satellite images showing at least three Iranian-made Khordad-3 anti-aircraft missile systems on the Syrian-Lebanese border, from where most of the Israeli F-16 attacks are made.
The effective range of destruction of targets of the latter is from 75 to 105 kilometers, which is enough to defeat Israeli fighters in the event of new attacks on Syria.
The transfer of these air defense units to Syria could have been done via air lift by the Islamic Republic.
It should be clarified that the appearance in this region of Syria of Iranian air defense systems was a rather big surprise, and if initially there were assumptions that we were talking about the Soviet-made ‘Cube’ complexes.
Later it turned out that the Syrian army has only a few of these air defense systems, which are all deployed near Damascus.
The appearance of this air defense system comes just a month after the Islamic Republic of Iran vowed to improve Syria’s air defenses.
Israel seeks to overthrow the Lebanese government in order to use its airspace more repeatedly in the upcoming months in order to start a war against northern Arab nations.
