Iran is playing with fire, Israeli defense official warns

(Worthy News) – Iran is “playing with fire” in its efforts to entrench itself in Syria, Israel’s northern neighbor, a senior Israeli defense official warned Wednesday.

The images, taken by Israeli firm ImageSat International, clearly show what is believed to be a new Iranian base in Jabal ash Sharqi, a mountainous area eight miles northwest of Damascus. The structures include two hangars that Western intelligence sources said are likely to store medium- and long-range missiles capable of hitting all of Israel. [ Source: Israel Hayom (Read More…) ]
