The Syrian regime is making adjustments to the positioning of air defense systems in Damascus

ARK News… While the Syrian regime's General Staff is working on "forming a military plan to establish a defensive wall to protect Syrian airspace from Israeli strikes," the Syrian regime's forces are making adjustments to the positioning of air defense systems in Damascus and its countryside.

The Voice of the Capital website said that, in conjunction with the repeated heavy Israeli bombing of regime sites and international airports over the past days, the Syrian regime’s air defense administration has been working, since mid-November, to reposition all radar, early warning, and air defense systems, including short-range systems carried on vehicles.

According to the Sawt Al-Asimah website, these measures came at a time when the Syrian regime’s General Staff was working on “forming a military plan to create a defensive wall to protect Syrian airspace from Israeli strikes.”

He added that the changes included the locations of the defensive systems in the southern region, which are located in the military units in Damascus and its countryside, without any change in the targeting sectors or the direction of shooting.

He stressed that the changes did not include any other logistical facilities for air defense systems, such as barracks, command headquarters, or ammunition and fuel depots.

Sawt al-Asimah indicated that most of the repositioned systems are Pantsir, Buk m-2, and SAM systems operating in the Syrian regime’s army, as they were recently linked to an advanced radar system.

The source said that the majority of the short- and medium-range air defense systems in the system were linked to the Iranian-made Bavar 373 early warning and air defense system radar, bringing the current connection range of air defense systems to the Iranian radar that scans the air to more than 300 kilometers.

Voice of the Capital revealed that one of the regime's air defense missiles failed to hit Israeli targets yesterday, as it fell on the roof of the main electricity substation located on the Daboul road linking the towns of Yalda and Daf al-Shouk in the Damascus countryside.

On Sunday 11/26/2023, Israeli aircraft targeted three Syrian regime sites in Damascus, resulting in Damascus International Airport being out of service and destroying air defense systems at Mezzeh Military Airport.
