Satellite Images Reveal Iran Establishing Missile Base Near Damascus

Two hangars are visible in the images, and are likely used to store short and medium range missiles. That base, near the town of El-Kiswah, 14 kilometers (8 miles) south of Damascus and about 50 kilometers (30 miles) from the Israel-Syria border on the Golan Heights, was still under construction when it was destroyed, the reports said.

Israeli defence minister Avigdor Liberman downplayed the report - telling Israel radio there is "nothing new here" and assuring "we have the full picture of what's going on".

Coons of DE also told reporters it's clear after the trip that the Trump administration needed a clearer policy to counter Iran and Russian Federation.

This report comes just days after satellite images taken by ISI proved that Russian Federation has deployed advanced Sukhoi Su-57 fighter jets. But recent incident of Israeli air raids on Iranian bases in Syria and downing of Israeli F-16 fighter jet by Syrian antiaircraft missile batteries which has happened for first time in 36 years has bought these two nations into direct confrontation with each other. But now with Iran developing new and enhanced capabilities in Syria which if not checked can turn existential threat to Israel in coming time. Tel Aviv had launched the biggest air raid operation in over three decades after intercepting an Iranian drone in Israeli airspace.

Maps published by the Institute for the Study of War, a US-based think tank, show Iran has dozens of long-term military facilities across Syria, ranging from headquarters to training facilities to drone bases.

On Tuesday, the head of US Central Command, Joseph Votel, warned that Iran has been increasing the quality and quantity of missiles it is supplying to groups in Syria and Lebanon.

There are about 2,000 U.S. troops on the ground in Syria. If Hezbollah launched a missile war with Israel from Lebanon, and Iranian forces and allies simultaneously did the same thing from Syria, and Palestinian guerillas did the same thing from Gaza.

Graham said that he thought provisions in the agreement phasing out an arrangement in which Israel could spend USA funds on its own defence industry and the provision of just 500 million dollars in missile defence funding were "short-sighted".
