BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:20 P.M.) – The Iranian air defense system has been deployed in for several months now, a source from the Syrian military told Al-Masdar News from Damascus.

According to the source, the Iranian Armed Forces deployed one of their air defense systems to the T-4 Airbase in eastern Homs after a big attack by the Israeli military killed several IRGC personnel at the installation.

The source said that in addition to the Iranian air defense system at the T-4 Airbase, the Russian military also has their own weapons at the installation to protect their forces in case of an attack.

In regards to the alleged interception of an Israeli warplane by the Russian Su-35, the source said he could not confirm these claims because the Russian forces in Syria have not divulged this information.

The T-4 Airbase in Syria is one of the only installations in Syria that has both an Iranian and Russian presence.

During the Syrian Army’s operation to retake Albukamal and several other areas east of the Euphrates, the Russian and Iranian armed forces used the T-4 Airbase to attack the Islamic State’s (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) positions.

However, since mid-2018, the base has mostly just housed military personnel from both the Russian and Iranian armed forces.

So it seems that Iranian SAMs are less efficient than Patriot… As soon as the usurpators of the mullahs’ regime will be hanged, be sure that Reza Pahlavi will purchase Iron Dome : at least this system works!

“So it seems that Iranian SAMs are less efficient than Patriot” they aren’t even here, how come you believe so fanatically in similar stuff that otherwise dismissed as bs whenever they appear on this site ? Plus, what was last the time the Patriot was tested against IDF aircraft in battle exactly ? “be sure that Reza Pahlavi will purchase Iron Dome : at least this system works!” First, a friendly reminder : the Shah is dead, so is his reign, and his son a drunk living in golden exile. Second : what on earth has the homemade rocket buster… Read more »
