Iran Used Earthquake Relief Flights to Smuggle Weapons into Syria, Sources

Iran: According to nine Syrian, Iranian, Israeli, and Western sources, Iran brought weapons and military equipment into its vital partner Syria using earthquake relief flights. According to the sources, the objective was to support Bashar al-Assad in Syria and enhance Iran’s defences against Israel there.

Syria as a whole saw more than 6,000 fatalities.

According to the reports, hundreds of planes carrying supplies from Iran started landing in Syria’s Aleppo, Damascus, and Latakia airports after the February 6 earthquake in northern Syria and Turkey. These flights landed for a period of seven weeks. According to the United Nations, Syria as a whole saw more than 6,000 fatalities.

The supplies included cutting-edge communications gear, radar batteries etc

According to two regional sources and a Western intelligence source, the supplies included cutting-edge communications gear, radar batteries, and replacement components needed for a planned upgrade of Syria’s air defence system supplied by Iran during its civil war. Iran’s envoy to the United Nations in New York responded, “That’s not true,” when questioned about whether Iran had used humanitarian relief flights after the earthquakes to transport military material to Syria to strengthen its network there and support Assad. An inquiry for comment was not answered by the government of Syria.

Israel launched an intensive attempt to stop the flow of weapons into Syria

Regional sources claim that Israel launched an intensive attempt to stop the flow of weapons into Syria as soon as it became aware of it. Israeli air strikes against the shipments relied on intelligence so precise that Israel’s military knew which truck in a lengthy convoy to target, according to Brigadier General Yossi Kuperwasser, an insider and former head of research in the Israel army as well as the general director of the Ministry of Strategic Affairs.

Aleppo airport in northern Syria received the majority of the help

According to a senior Israeli defence source who requested anonymity, “Israel has seen significant movements of military equipment from Iran, mostly transported in parts, under the guise of shipments of earthquake aid to Syria.” He claimed that the Aleppo airport in northern Syria received the majority of the help. He said that the Unit 18000 Syrian division of the Quds Force, the overseas espionage and paramilitary branch of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards directed by Hassan Mehdoui, was responsible for organising the shipments.
