Report: Russia Upgrades Syria Radar System to Provide Early Warning to Iran

Israeli military magazine Israel Defense has reported that Russian military experts recently upgraded Syria’s long-range radar capabilities to provide Iran with a more cohesive early-detection system in the event of a strike on its nuclear facilities.

The report said that the experts brought new equipment and software modifications with them, and focused on a radar facility “south of Damascus,” and another on Mount Sannine in Lebanon. The upgraded radar is purported to be able to detect aerial activity within a range of hundreds of kilometers. This is in addition to other sites in Syria that are operated and manned by Russian officials – like the port of Tartus Port, which also comprise the framework Syria’s early warning system.

Russia is reported to have invested “considerable efforts and funds” to upgrade Syria’s radar systems.
