Flagrantly violating UN Security Council sanctions, Iran has been transferring Russian made anti-air missiles from Damascus to Tehran.
The Paris-based Figaro daily published a report on Wednesday, January 9th, saying Iranian planes, constantly transferring weapons to Damascus, on their route back to Tehran are transferring S-17 anti-air systems from Syria to Iran.
These advanced systems are able to target and down drones and stealth planes. Iran intends to use these anti-air systems to protect its nuclear sites, the report adds.
S-17 systems are a smaller version of the S-300 anti-air missile system that Russia refused to deliver to Iran under pressures from Western countries.
