(Worthy News) - The Israeli military has uncovered further evidence of Iranian entrenchment in Syria and Lebanon.
On Tuesday the IDF released images of a base in Lebanon’s Beqaa Valley it said Hezbollah was using for its fledgling precision missile program, which Israel sought to disrupt recently with two calculated drone strikes on a facility in Beirut.
The base, according to the IDF, is of “supreme importance” to the program by which Hezbollah seeks to convert basic missiles into weapons capable of hitting their target within a 33-foot margin of error, and has reportedly been seen receiving weapons transfers with Iranian assistance.
Earlier in the week Fox News released satellite images of a new Iranian base in Syria, the largest to date, which showed a compound with five buildings capable of housing thousands of soldiers, all constructed under orders of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps’ foreign operations unit, or Quds Force.
The IDF thwarted a planned Iranian drone strike on Israel when it bombed a base near Aqraba, Syria on August 25, hitting Iran-linked targets in Lebanon and Iraq the next day in what many saw as a sign that the Jewish state’s covert war with the Islamic Republic had gone public.
