(Worthy News) – Israeli airstrikes on Iranian targets in Syria have increasingly targeted airports to counter Tehran’s growing use of commercial flights to bring military supplies into the country, Reuters reported Friday, citing intelligence and diplomatic sources.
A Western intelligence source and a Syrian military defector told the news agency that Tehran has taken to flying small weapons and other military supplies on regular civilian flights. Supplies transferred include precision-guided missiles, night vision equipment and UAVs, all of which are small enough to load onto civilian planes, they said.
Iran has increasingly relied on flights as its previous ground routes via Iraq have become unreliable amid local turf wars and internal conflicts, the report said. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More…) ]
