Iran Will Likely Sell Air Defense Systems To Syria - Iranian State TV

Iran is likely to sell air defense systems to Syria to boost its defenses in the face of frequent Israeli attacks, Iranian state TV said on February 24.

“Syria needs to rebuild its air defense network and requires precision bombs for its fighter planes,” the state broadcaster said.

“It is very likely that we will witness the supply by Iran of radars and defense missiles, such as the 15 Khordad system, to reinforce Syria’s air defenses,” the TV said, adding that only parts of a recent defense agreement with Syria were being publicized.

The Khordad 15 was developed by the Iran Aviation Industries Organization to counter all types of aircraft, including stealthy fighter jets, as well as cruise missiles and drones.

The long-range air defense system is typically armed with the Sayyad-3 radar-guided missile, which has a maximum range of 150 kilometers and a flight altitude of 30 kilometers. The system can detect, intercept and destroy up to six targets simultaneously.

Iranian state TV report came less than a week after one of Israel’s largest attacks on Syria this year. The main target of the attack, which took place on February 19, was reportedly an installation where Syrian and Iranian officials were meeting to advance programmes to develop drones or missiles. Five people, including four civilians, were killed and at least 15 others were wounded as a result of the attack.

Over the past year, several news reports talked about a plan to establish an Iranian air defense network in Syria. The Khordad 15 system was mentioned in some of these reports. However, no evidence confirming the deployment of any Iranian-made air defense systems in Syria have been presented, so far.

Iranian-made systems could improve the capabilities of Syrian air defenses. However, their deployment is guaranteed to provoke Israel, who has already vowed to destroy any such system in the war-torn country.

Why does the Syrian Government need Iranian air defense batteries when they have superior Russian SA batteries since 2015?…

Oh I forgot… They are all turned off when Russia’s business associate I$rael needs to attack them!…

Russia’s are defences in Syria are not enough to defend all of Syria from the entire Israeli Air Force. You have to have more defensive missiles then the other side has offensive missiles and planes. Don’t forget Isreal will order their USSA slaves to die for them and sacrifice their planes against Syrian air defenses as well, like they are doing in Ukraine with the Ukies, so you need enough missiles to shoot them down as well.

Bs. Russia delayed the agreed delivery of the S-300 for 10 years to please Israel and our equal partners, and this is a fact. No matter how much hot air you pull out from your behind.

I’d be trying them before buying them.


It was tested when Iranian home made aa shot down American stealth global hawk !!

Kremlin just issued a declaration that they will discuss a possible delivery of the promised S-300 to Assad in an emergency meeting tomorrow.

This comes after pressure from high level sources in Russia’s MIC and Russia’s Deep State who are afraid they could loose these money to other competitors in the International Community.


The day the iranian mullahs are vaporized into thin air like their beloved general of the long past is the day of rejoice for lebanon and the arab world.


İran alway do did and will fu…e in every where. Israel is poor so little.

I’m a proud western euro trash zionist whore who bends over and takes cock for shekels per hour, and my pink ugly ham face loves getting it in my stinking mouth. So much so my wife left me for a real man 😂


Looks like Iran can be better partner to Syria than Russia. Putin try please West for long time at the expense of true friends. Now Putin got what he deserves. The only sad part is that Russian solders and civilians paying for Putin and Putin Generals mistakes


Russians have a soft spot for Jews/Zionists and the West, it is a fact.

Look it up, Putin asked to join NATO and to this day Putin protect Zionists because it is a free PR for him.

(2000): Acting Russian President Vladimir Putin, in an unexpected gesture to the West, suggested in a television interview today that Russia would consider joining NATO if the Western alliance agreed to treat Russia as an equal partner.

“Why not? Why not?” Putin said when asked by BBC interviewer David Frost about Russian membership. “I do not rule out such a possibility . . . in the case that Russia’s interests will be reckoned with, if it will be an equal partner.”

“Russia is a part of European culture, and I do not consider my own country in isolation from Europe and from . . . what we often talk about as the civilized world,” Putin said. “Therefore, it is with difficulty that I imagine NATO as an enemy.”

Now Putin sees what NATO is really about, he will learn what Zionists are cooking for him later as well. Trust me Russia going to show their backs to Zionists in a few years.

Thats maybe why nothing is happening to Kiev, as the Ukrainian government is filled with jooish zionist bolcheviks like the previous Sovjet governments.

Sam Russians are double faced CANNOT BE TRUSTED


Why does Iran bring this kind thinks in the news? Don t give all this kind of information to your enemy. ( USA-Israel . )

S Balu



If Russian shoot missiles at Israelies’ planes then Israel will help Ukraine. It’s like saying if you help my enemy, then I’ll help your enemy. What I don’t understand is why Russia insist on being friendly with Israel to begin with?

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
