Iran said to be building a large military base on Iraq-Syria border. Hezbollah plans a dangerous missile factory.
Axar.az reports citing Fox News that Iran is constructing a new military facility in Syria that can house thousands of soldiers, according to the Tuesday`s report.
Quoting Western intelligence sources, the US cable network said the base is located near the Syria-Iraq border, and its construction is being overseen by the Quds Force, the overseas branch of Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.
Satellite photos of the base, known as the Imam Ali compound, showed what appeared to be five recently constructed buildings that can store precision-guided missiles.
ImageSat, an Israeli satellite imagery analysis firm, said the photos also show other structures at the facility that could be used for storing missiles.
