Report: Iran Worried Over Syrian Air Defense Failure

From Report: Iran Worried Over Syrian Air Defense Failure:

Iran is concerned over the failure of Syria's air defense systems to detect the Israel Air Force non-stealth aircraft that reportedly carried out an attack inside Syria last month, Aviation Week reported Wednesday. According to the report, Israel used highly advanced equipment to jam Syria's defenses, thus neutralizing the defense missile systems which rely on it. Iran is especially concerned over the failure of Syria's Russian-made radar systems. Iran is slated to purchase more Russian radar equipment to protect its nuclear facilities in a future deal worth $750 million.
