The timing of the report that Syria and Iran have stepped up air defense near Damascus comes just days after an IRGC commander was killed in Syria, in a bombing that was widely attributed to Israel.

The Syrian military and Iranian militia groups in the country have rolled out new, advanced air defense systems near Damascus, aimed at stopping Israeli air strikes in the area.

According to a report from the Jerusalem Post, which cited the Syrian Capital Voice outlet, Damascus and Tehran have obtained more sophisticated air defense systems from Korean and Chinese manufacturers.

    but will become a heap of ruins.” Isaiah 17:1

Iran is believed to have paid for the air defense systems as part of a partnership with Syria, whose embattled leader, Bashar al-Assad, has given his tacit approval to Iranian assets operating throughout his country.

Those Iranian agents are often the target of Israeli air strikes. Although Jerusalem has never formally confirmed or denied responsibility for bombings of Iranian bases in Syria, Israel is believed to have successfully carried out hundreds of air strikes in the country in recent years.

The Capital Voice report indicated that the new air defense systems are significantly more effective than the systems previously used in Syrian air space, and have repelled Israeli aircraft at least twice since October 2022.
