Meanwhile, in another incident, Russia's Wagner group is reportedly supplying Hezbollah with an SA-22 air defense missile system. This missile system potentially provides Hezbollah with a means to defend against Israeli airstrikes, including the capability to target Israeli warplanes like the F16 and F35, as well as ballistic and hypersonic missiles.
The delivery of the air defense system to Lebanon is still pending, which raises questions about the possibility of it being transported to Gaza to support Hamas. This development has significant implications for the region's evolving dynamics and its impact on regional security.
Known as the SA-22 or Pantsir, this advanced air defense system is mounted on trucks and is designed for short-range defense. It can intercept a wide array of threats, including aircraft, helicopters, UAVs, ballistic missiles, and cruise missiles. Russia has positioned it as an equivalent to the US Patriot System and even superior to some of Russia's own air defense systems.
