Syria strengthens its security in the South


In the South of Syria, the Syrian Arab Army is proceeding to set up batteries of anti-air missiles, specifically along the boundary marking off Syria from the Israeli occupied Golan.

At the same time, Hezbollah forces in this area have started withdrawing to Lebanon.

For several years now, Israel has been making requests for Iranian troops or troops linked to Iran (such as the Lebanese Hezbollah) to withdraw from Southern Syria. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has gone to Moscow several times to petition for this. However he is not sure that the Syrian deployment is more to his liking.

It was Russia that conceived the Syrian anti-air system. The Russian invention allows you to anticipate new air attacks. Over recent years, Israel has stepped up its incursions from its air space and the air space of Lebanon, to the beat of about one per month.
