Iran transporting S-300 air defence systems near Arabian Gulf say activists

A video purporting to show Iranian Revolutionary Guards transporting S-300 air defence systems to areas along the Gulf is being shared on social media by Iranian activists.

According to activist group Arab Struggle Movement for the Liberation of Ahvaz, the vehicles are transporting the defence systems and other military equipment in the coastal city of Asaluyeh in the southern province of Bushehr.

The activists say the air defence systems are being moved to protect a nuclear reactor and sensitive sites along the Gulf from any possible attack.

The moves come as Iran’s air force chief Aziz Nasirzadeh on Monday threatened to bomb regional capitals and target oil installations in the Arabian Gulf in response to heightened tensions with the United States, according to Al Arabiya.
