Persian missiles to Lebanon?

Tehran offers anti-aircraft missiles to Beirut

Iran is prepared to provide Lebanon with anti aircraft missiles, the Islamic Republic’s ambassador to Lebanon said over the weekend. “Iran is ready to supply modern anti-aircraft arms to Lebanon,” the official Islamic Republic News Agency quoted Ambassador Mohammad Reza Sheibani as saying after talks late Saturday with the commander of the Lebanese Army, General Michel Suleiman.

Prime Minister Fouad Siniora’s office had no comments on the Iranian initiative.



  1. Mmmmmmmm….probably more like, ‘Iran offers local knock-offs of Chinese knock-offs of Russian anti-aircraft missiles to Beirut’. The copyright infringement implications are staggering.

  2. Russia is selling directly to Iran, and there is no reason to believe they do not work. The Russians are not our friends.
