DAMASCUS, (BM) – Russia’s Aviapro news agency, citing field sources, claims that Iran is transporting missile weapons and systems to Syria using Russia’s Khmeimim airbase’s services. The agency claims that Israel’s refusal to implement the agreement between Vladimir Putin and Benjamin Netanyahu on the de-escalation of Syria’s situation is the reason for the Russians’ decision.
Other Syria sources say that two Iranian Air Force military transport planes landed at the Latakia province airport just a few hours ago. Military analysts say that through Khmeimim air base Iran has the opportunity to deploy its missile systems near Israel quickly.
Experts say that in response to Israeli attacks in recent weeks on Iranian arms depots in Syria, Tehran is likely to transport some of the missile weapons to neighboring Lebanon and northern Syria.
Israel cannot take offensive action against Iranian transport planes landing in Khmeimim. The base is Russian, and any foreign intervention will force the Russians to respond with full military might.
Israeli-Iranian proxy war / cold war
Communication between Israel and Iran is mostly threatening and hostile. Such has been the relationship between the two countries for a very long time. This situation is known as the proxy conflict, the proxy war, or the Cold War between the two countries.
The conflict “appeared” on the world map after the Iranian revolution in 1979. In all the years to this day, Iran aims to destroy Israel as a state. Tehran supports groups and organizations that are hostile to the Jewish state and people. On the other hand, Israel is worried about Iran’sIran’s nuclear program. The proximity of the two countries worries Tel Aviv that Iranians could use them against Israel if Iran has nuclear weapons. Israel also finds its allies in the face of the United States and Saudi Arabia, which are apparent opponents of Iran.
Thus, this conflict gradually turned into an Israeli-Iranian war. The competition has been going on since the start of the Syrian civil war. According to Iran, Israel rules by an illegitimate “Zionist regime,” a Tehran problem. Iran’sIran’s other point of reference is that the United States is hostile to Muslims because it supports Israel.
