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.
