Report: Satellite Surveillance Finds Iranian Missile Base in Syria

Friday, March 02, 2018 |  Israel Today Staff
Iran’s presence in Syria can no longer be dismissed as involvement in its ally’s ongoing civil war.
Fox News reported this week that satellite imagery had revealed a new Iranian military facility near Damascus.
The size and position of two large hangars indicate that the base is hosting short and medium range missiles.
A similar base constructed by Iran last year was bombed and destroyed by Israel.
The rebellion against Syrian dictator Bashar Assad wouldn’t require Iran to deploy medium range missiles to the country, especially given that the Russian Air Force is also involved on their behalf.
The only reasonable assumption is that these missiles are meant for Israel.
