On Targeting: Iranian Air Defense Systems Israel today


Tehran is desperate to rely on Syria - and has decided to smuggle into the region its own defense systems • It seems that the attack was intended to harm them, and preserve Israel's air superiority

Just as he treated the outgoing prime minister, Naftali Bennett, even the new prime minister, Yair Lapid, Benjamin Netanyahu refuses to come to receive security briefings.

Netanyahu is trying to convey that the current prime minister is "small on him."

He clarified that he would be updated only through the professionals, such as the military secretary.

In doing so, he violates the important practice, and by implication - the state.

Had Netanyahu bothered to catch up on the weekend, he would have learned that new things are happening in the sector.

The attack attributed to the Air Force yesterday morning in the coastal sector of Syria, south of Tartus, may have been routine, but the target was quite different from the usual.

It turns out that Iran has recently been making a secret effort to smuggle air defense systems and means into Syria.

The Iranians, desperate for the Syrian air defense to succeed in disrupting the Israeli air force's repeated attacks on weapons smuggling, want to achieve independent capability in the field, and to act independently of others.

Skye and his actions are transparent

Al-Arabiya network revealed over the weekend that the secret project is being led by Farid Muhammad Skai, a senior Revolutionary Guards officer who has recently been spotted coming to Damascus several times.

Skye was scheduled for his visits with members of the Syrian air defense, and apparently works in full coordination with them.

Iran itself smuggles air defense equipment on the same air and land routes it uses to smuggle weapons into Syria.

Yesterday's attack appears to have been aimed at such components that had already been smuggled into Syria, with the aim of using them in the future against the Air Force in the coastal sector.

It can be assumed from the attack that Israel is determined not to allow this, and to maintain full air superiority in the sector.

The revelation of Skye's name should also make it clear to him that he and his actions are transparent, and force him to save his life, for fear of being harmed.

Hezbollah's UAV interception also indicates the same Iranian effort. Hezbollah will excuse it in the controversy over economic waters, but these are idle claims: There is no real controversy over the "shark" issue, and even if it did - it does not justify a military attack. But Hezbollah's willingness to act for The Iranians and by the way endanger Lebanon show that the northern front is more explosive than ever.

These events also show that despite the Israeli effort to thwart Iranian activity, Tehran is determined to continue on its path.

In this respect, Lapid's tenure will not be different from that of his predecessors: in it, too, activity against Iran is expected to continue, by all means and by all means.
