BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 A.M.) – A Syrian cargo plane made another delivery from the Iranian capital this past week as they continue to make these weekly trips.

According to online observer Manu Gomez, a Syrian Air Force IL-76 YK-ATB made the journey from Tehran’s Mehrabad Airport to the Damascus International Airport during the day on Sunday.

While the cargo inside the plane is not officially known, it is very likely that the Syrian Air Force is transporting new weapons from Russia via Tehran.

In the past, the Israeli Air Force has carried out airstrikes on these shipments from Iran, prompting many observers to focus on these deliveries.

Israel has warned Iran and Syria about delivering weapons to Damascus in the past, but since the Israeli attacks on the capital city a weeks ago, the Syrian military has amplified these deliveries despite the threats from the Netanyahu administration.

Israel can’t make the decision what is in the plane. Can be medical equipment. Satanyahoo have to keep very calm, than he is the one to s**t stir all the time.
Peace for Syria, God bless.

It’s obvious… And not forcedly by VKS (RuAF) : Russians do the most clever thing most of countries should consider : having a state held company or state/civilian joint-venture owning most of the heavy cargoes, so, when the military need heavy cargoes, they have the priority, the rest of the time, these aircraft are making money on the civilian market! Thus, it’s more likely Aeroflot than VKS doing the transport. The bad example is USAF which owns shïtloads of C-17 which are 2.5x more expensive than e.g. an Airbus A330 which can lift even more payload and use the same… Read more »

Sorry, it’s not according to Manu Gomez, it’s courtesy of Flightradar which relays all civilian ATC (air traffic control) transponder data on their website.
Note it may even be practical for 3rd world countries : I know some international airports with no systems at all, not even a weather-radar or ILS : at least, Flightradar can help to monitor their own traffic!

IDF actions will depend on what is onboard the cargo and especially to whom it is destined… If it’s full of missiles destined to Hezbollah, we can be sure that the warehouse will blow…
