Tehran has equipped Damascus with a sophisticated radar system to help thwart a surprise Israeli strike against the Iran’s nuclear, The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.

According to both the Israeli and U.S. officials, the weapons transfer occurred sometime in mid-2009 as part of increased military coordination between Iran, Syria, and Hezbollah.

The Israel Defense Forces confirmed the existence of the Iran-Syria deal on Wednesday, according to the Wall Street Journal. Israeli officials fear that the transfer will enable Syria to discern early warning of Israel Air Force sorties.

Such a deal would be a violation of a 2007 United Nations Security Council resolution that forbids Iran from transferring, selling, or supplying arms or related material.

While Israeli officials privately confirmed the radar transfer, the IDF did not give any specifics regarding the deal when asked by The Wall Street Journal.

Spokesman for the Syrian Embassy in Washington, Ahmed Salkini, slammed the report on the weapons transfer, calling it a PR stunt on behalf of Israel.

“[The radar transfer is a] classic Israeli PR stunts aimed at diverting the world’s attention from the atrocities they are committing in Gaza and other occupied territories, and we will not continue wasting our time,” said Salkini.

Iran denied it had sent advanced radars to Syria, and Hezbollah officials in Beirut declined to comment.
