Iran Building Another Syrian Base to Target Israel

 

Iran has constructed another military base in Syria with the ability to host missiles that can strike any part of Israel, according to ImageSat International satellite images obtained exclusively by Fox News.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps’ (IRGC) al-Quds Force reportedly operates the base, which is located outside of the Syrian capital Damascus.

Iran already oversees a military compound near the Damascus airport and other high-profile airbases and permanent military sites across the country.

The United States and Israel are very concerned about Iran’s ongoing efforts to consolidate permanent operating bases in Syria. Since intervening in that country’s civil war in 2011, the Islamic Republic has been working to cement a land bridge from Tehran to Beirut through Syria.

Earlier this month, Israel shot down an Iranian drone that infiltrated Israel’s airspace. Israeli jets subsequently bombed several military targets in Syria, including some under Iranian control. In the process, Syrian air defenses downed an Israeli jet – the first time an Israeli military aircraft had been taken out by enemy fire since the 1980s.
