Surprise for Israeli F-16s: Iran has deployed Khordad-3 air defence systems in Syria

BATTLE FOR WORLD | August 29, 2020: Iran is patiently waiting for Israel’s F-16 fighter jets to swoop into Syria to attack, to be engaged by the Khordad-3 air defence systems, advanced technology manufactured in Iran.

Iran has already revealed that the first enemy, a U.S. stealth drone was shot down using the Khordad-3 system, with an operational range of about 75 and 105 kilometres to intercept airborne targets, equipped with a powerful phased array radar, the system can engage and intercept 4 active targets at each round.

Iran has deployed, based on satellite images, at least three Iranian-made Khordad-3 anti-aircraft missile systems on the Syrian-Lebanese border, the location of which is from where most of Israel’s F-16 attacks are made into Syria. The Khordad-3 air defence systems are outfitted to hit hostile targets over the entire territory of Lebanon. The Israeli military has not attempted to attack Syria for over a month, which means that the IDF is aware of the current situation, and is trying to overcome it.

The Iranian military tactics in Syria are changing and the appearance of their air defence systems in the region of Syria was not really a surprise, because official Tehran media announced the intentions to transfer its own air defence systems to Syria, and there’s even talk about deploying the latest Iranian BAVAR-373 air defence systems there.

Looks like more air strikes from Israel within the next 2 weeks.

By failing to intervene, specifically in cases where Turkish forces were present when the abuses took place, Turkey “may have violated” its human rights treaties obligations, the UN said, using typically cautious language.

With those words, legal experts contended, the UN is effectively suggesting that Turkey participated in violations of international humanitarian law.

Phillips observed in emailed comments to Al-Monitor, “Syria could challenge Turkey’s occupation of its territory as an act of aggression before the International Court of Justice, which would have jurisdiction to rule the occupation illegal.” Likewise, victims could bring suit against Turkey in the European Court of Human Rights. “Although there are obstacles to achieving enforcement of any judgment, victims might be able to raise the profile of abuses committed by the Syrian National Army, and to shame Turkey into reigning in its proxy forces,” Phillips concluded.


Still, there is a sliver of evidence that the UN censure may be having an effect. The UN reported that a member of the Syrian National Army-affiliated Ahrar Al-Sharqiyah brigade was sentenced by a military court of the Turkey-based Syrian Interim Government (SIG) for the murder of Syrian Kurdish politician Hevrin Khalaf.

US pressure is believed to have played a role. The SIG also banned the recruitment of child soldiers in May, a violation that is also committed by the US-backed Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection Units, the UN said.

Turkey, however, continues to detain Syrian Kurds inside Syria and render them to Turkey, where they are jailed and prosecuted on thinly supported terror charges, in a further breach of the Geneva Conventions, Phillips said.


“Turkish officers on the ground at times stopped abuses, but there is no clear overall policy on halting these abuses,” Tsurkov remarked in an interview with Al-Monitor.

Ankara has the leverage to do so because “Turkey is the one paying salaries to these fighters. If salaries were cut off from abusers, if there were serious prosecution of abusers, the suffering of civilians under the control of these factions will be greatly reduced,” Tsurkov said.


...yiavash, yiavash.

...Syria, where it came to a stop; remembering 10 years, of Tunisia's revolution, and the Arab Spring.
