BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:45 P.M.) – A Russian news channel published a video this week that showed the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) forces near Russian and Chinese air defense systems.

According to the Russian aviation publication, Avia.Pro, the Chinese JYL-1 radar system was spotted with the Syrian Arab Army in a video that was released by Russia’s Channel One News.

“Channel One published unique video frames from the northern part of Syria, on which experienced specialists noticed not only the Russian-made Pantsir-C1 air defense systems, but also the Chinese JYL-1 radar, which greatly expanded the capabilities of Syrian air defense systems,” Avia.Pro reported.

The publication said the Russian Pantsir-C1 air defense system has been integrated with the Chinese JYL-1 radar, which significantly increases the radius of detection of air targets, in particular, the effective range for detecting aerodynamic targets by up to 450 kilometers.

The JYL-1 can also be integrated with the Russian S-300 air defense system, which was delivered to Syria last year.

It is not clear when the Chinese JYL-1 arrived in Syria, nor has the Syrian Arab Army commented on the alleged deployment of these radars.

What would be good if the Russians provided the SAA with some of their latest hypersonic missiles so that the Syrians could blow up the Israeli air bases and command centres from where the latter launches their unprovoked attacks on Syria. Just saying, the Russian weapons need real-time testing of their latest weapons systems….

This is a good way to increase the defensive air cover.
