BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:15 A.M.) – Iran is preparing to supply the Syrian Armed Forces with their new domestically-made warplane and S-300 missile system, a military source in Damascus told Al-Masdar News last night.
According to the source, the Iranians are planning to supply the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) with their newest warplane, which is dubbed the “Kowsar.”
Furthermore, the Iranian military is planned to supply Syria with their own version of the S-300 missile defense system.
No date was given regarding this transfer.
The Iranian military receive their first batch of S-300 missile defense systems last year after they purchased them from the Russian government.
Iran often produces their own domestically-made military equipment that is modeled after U.S. and Russian manufactured weapons; this has been a concern for Israel, as they fear these weapons will be transferred to their allies like Hezbollah.
