(Jerusalem Post / Worthy News)– The deputy commander of Iran's Revolutionary Guard (IRGC), Brig.-Gen. Hossein Salami announced on Saturday that his country has built a top secret air-defense system, which is more advanced than the Russian S-300.
"An air defense system more advanced than what they didn't supply to us due to their strategic interests went on display in the IRGC's recent exhibition," Salami said in Tehran according to a report by Iran's Fars news agency.
He said that the air-defense system would not be publicly displayed, but would "remain confidential" for now.
Media reports indicate that Iran has long sought to purchase the S-300 from Russia but has faced pressure from the US and Israel against the sale.
