The North Koreans have a board assortment of air defense weapons including the SA-10 grumble and the SA-17 Gadfly. It is believed both are produced locally in NK. NK is believed to have a handful of the SA-10 but 500 of the SA-17s.
The SA-10 is the basis of the S-300 air defense system the Russians have refused to sell Iran.
It is possible that Iran is trying to get some of this air defense hardware in the event the conference in Turkey falls apart.
Would the NK missiles be as good as the Russian? Probably not.
Meanwhile, the Israels are rattling sabers. DEBKAfile reports that Israel’s chief of staff Gen. Benny Gantz said:
other countries have readied their armed forces for a potential strike against Iran’s nuclear sites to keep Tehran from acquiring nuclear weapons.
Who could that be?
