Security analysts say satellite images show Iran is constructing a facility in northwestern Syria for the manufacturing of long-range Scud missiles.
The analysts said the facility was similar to a rocket factory near Teheran, Israel’s Channel 2 reported on Aug. 17.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Israel was closely monitoring the situation and would act against any threats.
“Our policy is clear: We vehemently oppose the military buildup by Iran and its proxies, primarily Hizbullah, in Syria and we will do whatever it takes to protect Israel’s security,” Netanyahu said. …
The construction project stretches several kilometers along Wadi Jahannam, which is 8 kilometers from Baniyas.
