Iran brings drones to two redeployments near Syria-Israel border

Iran has redeployed UAVs opposite Israel at Al-Dimas near the Syria-Lebanon border, after the Revolutionary Guards Al-Qods Brigades obtained the permission of the Syrian ruler Bashar Assad. It is located west of Damascus and 40km from the Israeli border opposite the IDF’s Mt Hermon positions, DEBKAfile’s military and intelligence sources report. The new UAV post is embedded in a cluster of camps belonging to the Syrian army 4th Division, which is the Republican Guard under the command of the president’s brother Maher Assad.

Our sources report that the Iranians are moving into the small Syrian air base at Al Sharae, just 20km from the Tal Al-Harara hill, which is around 40km from the Israel’s Golan border in the east.

Eight months ago, the Iranian force first stationed at Al-Dimas came under an Israeli air raid. The Al Qods Brigades retaliated by firing a missile into central Israel. There were no casualties and both Tehran and Jerusalem kept quiet about this incident. Then, 10 days ago, Israeli surface missiles destroyed a new observation station just established by Iranian intelligence on Tal Al-Harara. Since this attack, Iranian drones were seen landing and taking off from Al Sharsae air base.

The attached map illustrates the extra efforts Tehran is making to recover its former positions and string them along the full length of the Syria-Israel border.

Reports coming out of Damascus this week meanwhile reveal that the Russians have deactivated the advanced S-400 air defense systems guarding the Syrian military Masyaf weapons research center in the west. Some sources report that Syria is now left only with S-300 systems, against which Israeli warplanes are equipped with effective evasive measures. No explanation is offered for these military movements which are infrequently disclosed by Moscow or Damascus.

    The only way to escape Israeli retribution for Iran-supported Syrians:
    move 100% underground – and stay there !

        A much too exaggerate proximity of Iranian weapons, experts, or troops is not good, they could attack Israel.
        A placement of Iranian weapons, experts, or troops too far out of ME is also not good, they will not be able to defend their country.

        The best equilibrium point is at around 1000 km far away from Israel borders, given or taken 5%.

        Interestingly, this point is bullseye situated in the center of Iran. And then, isn’t it much safer to stay home, and play tourist when a pensioner?

            Persia is a loser and will always be a loser.
            So is “palestine”, which is not even a real nation.

          • Aug 6, 2019 @ 3:02 at 3:02

            For the Palestinians, the optimum distance is 3000 km, give or take 10%.
            And guess what?
            Interestingly, this point is bullseye situated in the center Tunis, a city already well known to the people of the Monster of Munich.

            Iran has a lot of people..but sadly…not many support the mullahs or their radicalization that puts them on the brink of inhalation from Israeli nukes. The average Iranian just isn’t quite as silly as you pretend!

          • Aug 7, 2019 @ 11:02 at 11:02

            A lot of people yes 40 million to many people and fast running out of water… Your economy is a joke but instead of an economy you idiots build weapons. Keep going like that and your country will be a desert soon enough.

      The only way is peace . Moving underground , and move away is not working . When everyone understand that population in all countries is affected by Anglo American Israeli poodles .Stop war , make negotiations.

      • Aug 6, 2019 @ 3:06 at 3:06

        No need of negotiations, those Al-Qods Brigades are dead already.
        Only, they do not know it yet.

    Russia does not want the S400 technology to become available for western experts to develop effective counter measures. Could lose billions in potential sales!

    • Aug 9, 2019 @ 3:55 at 3:55

      “study” takes time and effort. “destruction” is much quicker and is far more damaging to export sales. the russians are smart enough to stay out of pointless fights and futile chest-thumping.

    Upgraded S300PM is the S400. S400 is S-300 PMU-3. Syria has 24 launchers. S300PM can ground attack You really don’t know how Syrias S300 is configured and with what detection and interception capabilities. We’ll have to wait for full scale conflict to see what it will deliver.

        When Israel’s friend comes again the area from the River of Egypt to the Euphrates (which included most of Syria) will be given to the Jews. So those who curse Israel will be cursed and those who bless her will be blessed.

    Russia is clear on the fact that Trump is not going to go into full out war with Iran. Perhaps Putin and Trump have this agreement in their pockets for a long time now.

    Trump likes his money too much and doesn’t care to know about war too much. He wants to see the conflicted parties fight it out on their own. He knows very well that the US is already sponsoring the defense of Israel in a much bigger way than he feels US should. Hence is arms deals.

    He is a smart man and knows what the arm deal with Saudis means. Imagine if Israel gets on bad terms with MBS … nobody would like have the kind of weapons he just bought aimed at them. MBS is laughing while Bibi can not afford to fight the entire Middle East. So a Jewish Hero Made Peace With Saudi Arabia 🙂

    For the time being. Both parties know that.

    Iran is also very aware of the situation. Stand alone Israel vs Iran would be a tough war to fight. Trump loves that fact. He will sell You arms but you have to pay up. Obama was a more honest man and clearly stated that US is paying too much for the defense of Israel. Trump the business man has a very different business model.

    Europe is very close to completely abandoning Israel. Trump needs to be paid for protection. MBS is laughing and waiting …

    In the end who are the two parties in conflict? Israel vs Iran. There is no doubt Iran would be happy to fight a stand alone war against Israel. But Israel would never have enough courage to go it alone.

    Do not be lulled into believing that the Russians have de activated the S400 system.They might well have done so and after Israel has accepted this as correct and indeed has successfully conducted operations on that basis ….it could suddenly without warning become activated in order for Israel to be ambushed

  • Aug 6, 2019 @ 12:14 at 12:14

    From the Debka article:

    “Reports coming out of Damascus this week meanwhile reveal that the Russians have deactivated the advanced S-400 air defense systems guarding the Syrian military Masyaf weapons research center in the west.”

    Are the Russians sending a message to someone?

    Perhaps the Russians believe that the Israelis now have the capacity to study an activated S-400 from a distance much better than in the past. By shutting them down for now, perhaps the Kremlin is intending to thwart that intention. Difficult for me to believe that the Kremlin is merely giving Israel a green light to attack targets. But, Israel could pretend to be launching a strike in order to study the S-400 better. But, if the Russians deactivate them, Israeli intelligence has less to study.
