Washington Post: Russia will provide Iran with an advanced satellite

Moscow-ALSHARQIYA June 11: US reports revealed that Russia is preparing to provide Iran with an advanced satellite that can track potential military targets throughout the Middle East.

The Washington Post quoted unnamed sources as saying that the satellite will allow continuous monitoring of facilities from oil refineries in the Gulf and Israeli military bases to the Iraqi barracks that host US forces.

The newspaper revealed that the plan would be to deliver a Russian-made Canopus-V satellite equipped with a high-resolution camera that could be launched from Russia within months.

The Washington Post reported that although the satellite was advertised for peaceful uses, the leaders of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards have made several visits to Russia since 2018 to help negotiate the agreement.
