Iranian Forces Installed Signal Intelligence Equipment Near Jordanian Border

Iranian forces have deployed a signal intelligence system along Syria’s border with Jordan, Nabaa, a Daraa based news outlet, reported on January 15.

Sources familiar with the situation told Nabaa that the system was moved from the district of Sajjnah in Daraa city, where it was originally installed, to a base in the town of Khrab al-Shahm. The town is located near the border line with Jordan.

A second “spying device” was reportedly installed by Iranian forces in a valley located between Khrab al-Shahm and the area of al-Thu’ailah.

Iranian forces may be planning to use the systems to tap on the communication of US forces in Joran, or even to spy on Israel to the west.

In the last few years, the Israeli Defense Forces targeted and destroyed many observation posts and spying equipment which were set up in Daraa and al-Quneitra by the Syrian Arab Army and Iranian forces.

The information revealed by Nabaa is yet to be verified. The deployment of spying equipment by Iran in southern Syria will for sure lead to more tensions with both Jordan and Israel.
