Not hoping for Russia: Iran will deploy S-300 analogues in Syria

The authorities of Iran and Syria signed an agreement on strengthening military cooperation between the two countries. Tehran will strengthen Syrian air defense as part of a broader military security agreement. This is reported by Press TV.

We will strengthen Syrian air defense as part of closer military cooperation between the two states. Countries and residents of the region do not approve of the presence of American troops, and our response to US aggression will continue

Said Major General Mohammad Bakery, chairman of the Iranian Armed Forces headquarters, after signing a “comprehensive” agreement with Syrian Defense Minister Ali Abdullah Ayub in Damascus.

Ayub, for his part, praised the level of relations between Damascus and Tehran.

If the Americans were able to conquer Syria and Iran, they would not hesitate for a second

- quoted the words of the Syrian Minister Libyan television channel Al-Mayadeen.

Ali Abdullah Ayub stressed that Israel is a strong US partner in the fight against Syria, adding that Israelis use terrorist militants in the war against Assad. According to analysts from the London-based Asharq Al-Awsat from Saudi Arabia, the signed agreement between the Syrian and Iranian military undermines the Kremlin’s efforts to keep Iran’s expansion into the SAR in order to protect its interests and satisfy Israel. The S-300 air defense systems in Syria are still silent, despite the IDF’s active actions - Russia forbids the Syrians from using the systems, which is why the Israeli air raids remain virtually unpunished.

Not hoping for Russia, Syria relies on Iran. So, according to the Iranian agency Tasnim News, citing an Arab source Raialyoum, we are talking about the supply of Iran’s Khordad anti-aircraft missile system (with its help, Iranian troops shot down a U.S. strategic unmanned aerial vehicle a year ago), as well as the Bavar 373 air defense system (according to experts , it can be considered an analogue of the Russian S-300).

After signing the agreement, representatives of Damascus and Tehran issued a joint statement. They noted in it that a comprehensive military agreement was signed in order to strengthen the defense capabilities of Syria and Iran against any possible foreign aggression.

    It seems to me that such things should be done quietly. After these statements, Israel can arrange the total destruction of everything that it seems to be similar to air defense systems.

    Not hoping for Russia, Syria relies on Iran.

    Not hoping for Russia in what? In providing air defense for the Iranians? And they were embarrassed to do this themselves? Not the first year, pieces of iron have flown from above.
    Israel’s efforts to squeeze out the Persians seem to be at an impasse.
    We will observe with interest what Iranian engineers were able to create, how this works in practice.

    Recent events in Netanz have very convincingly demonstrated what, who, where and when. Israel simply cannot, due to the vulnerability of its tiny territory, the lack of strategic depth of defense, allow Iran to strengthen its position near its borders. The answer of Jerusalem can be complex: both in the territory controlled by the Assad regime, and directly in Iranian territory. Moreover, no matter what they say, today most of the Arab countries are enemies of Tehran. And the enemy of my enemy is my friend. So, in fact, it turns out if we analyze the relations of Israel with Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, CA, UAE, Sudan. The Maghreb countries are neutral, Iraq is out of the game. Yemen is not taken into account due to backwardness. Libya is not up to Israel. Syria, as such, is not. Lebanon is controlled by Hezbollah, but it is not the player to fear. So far, Iran is against Israel, unless it has demonstrated the ability to professionally puff out cheeks, and emotional rhetoric:

    a) We will take revenge
    b) We will revenge terribly.

    Whether the Iranians would like to try to participate in the air defense \ aviation dispute is a big question. Something tells me that there is little real similar confrontation. The Iranians themselves are afraid to deploy their air defense because of fear of image losses in the event of Israeli attacks, and the Syrians do not need it at all. Substitute Israeli attacks to protect Iranian facilities?

    I have said more than once that if Russia came to the war on its own, then it is necessary to fight. Otherwise we are against terrorism, but we are not against another state bombing another state. As if this is not state terrorism? In accusing Iran, Israel forgets to say: "Why did Iran suddenly appear in Syria?" Or maybe because Israel supported these terrorists in overthrowing the legitimate government of Syria! And Iran realized that after Syria it is next ?! Over the past 5 years, Syria has never bombarded the territory of Israel, let alone an air raid! Russia is behaving very indecently, allowing Israel to bomb Syria. Assad is doing the right thing, trying to defend against Israeli air strikes, and Iran is doing the right thing, with a desire to test its air defense in action!

      And why did Iran suddenly appear in Syria?

      Elementaryly, Watson - the Persians carry out a massive expansion in the BV within the framework of the traditional Shiite struggle with the Sunnis, which has been going on for more than a thousand years. And Israel is the most significant obstacle to this expansion, because it is located in the very center of the Arab world and is too tough for Iran. So Ayatollah Khomeini declared the Jewish state the most dangerous enemy of the Islamic Revolution immediately after coming to power.

      This is not due to peace, but only because of the complete inability to resist the Israelis.

      There is nothing to experience here - the result is clear in advance. And the Persians do not dare to directly confront the Israelis, the Israelis regularly attack Iranian targets in Assad, the number of Iranian troops eliminated is hundreds, now military facilities are already exploding in Iran itself, and the Persians are afraid to even fart in response. Previously, they would have used Hezbollah to attack Israel, but today in Lebanon this is not the situation - the Lebanese are afraid to receive from the Israelis for hezbollons, they remember 2006. So the best that the Persians can do is quietly collect their manat and crawl home, it is clear that they have nothing to catch here. hi

      Even over the past 40 years! laughing lol Because she didn't want to, or because she couldn't ?! wassat Or is it because she simply wants to live?
      Israel itself hardly touches Syria. But he has to stop the Iranians, who are crawling by hook or by crook to its borders.

    An interesting layout.
    And how will Iran’s air defense and its own system - a foreign Russian aerospace forces, interact ????
    Author, would you at least calculate the probability of your fantasies .....
    (IL-20 from a Syrian friendly rocket launched into the Jews, do not remember how it ended).

    Until they begin to deliver massive strikes from the MLRS at the bases from which the planes take off, no air defense will help. Sooner or later they will miss the beat. Pure defense tactics are always flawed.
