Iran is setting up an offensive air base in Syria, according to satellite imagery analyzed by Israeli media.
The satellite imagery allegedly reveals that an IL-76 warplane that took off from Tehran landed at the Syrian Air Force Base T4 in eastern Syria on November 21st.
The images dated November 21st, 2019, provided by “Intelli Times ” and “Satellite Pleiades from Airbus Defense & Space”, show a large cargo trailer on the runway of the ‘Iran-operated’ T4 military base located in the Homs District in central Syria.
The transport has been reportedly taking place over the last few weeks at the T4 base, “as part of its preparation for an attack the likes seen back in September on the Saudi oil fields,” i24News reported.
The initial unloading was detected on November 19th, according to the reports. That is the same date that Israel intercepted four rockets reportedly launched from Syrian soil towards Israeli territory.
In response, the Israeli military said that on November 20th fighter jets hit multiple targets belonging to Iran’s elite Quds force, including surface-to-air missiles, weapons warehouses and military bases. It said a number of Syrian aerial defense batteries were also destroyed after an air defense missile was fired. These strikes allegedly even hit the “glass house” used by the IRGC at Damascus airport.
Israel reportedly refrained from targeting the T4 base due to its division into three areas controlled by the Russian, Iranian and Syrian army.
Furthermore, Israeli media take advantage of the rumors spread in MSM regarding “fresh intelligence” and other reports of an Iranian threat, despite there being no evidence to back them up. A report by the Wall Street Journal on a possible US deployment to the Middle East was also rejected.
ISI published an assessment on December 4th that noted the Albukamal base is almost complete and it “may allow Iran to transfer equipment, weapons and personnel from Iraq through its new controlled border crossing and directly to fortified storehouses in the new base.”
It noted that the November 20th attacks “were probably part of the IDF’s efforts to prevent a force build-up near the Israeli border. Additionally, to stop Iran from creating a safe and fully controlled corridor from Tehran, through Iraq to its allies in Syria and Lebanon.”
In addition, while Iraq is suffering from protests, Israeli media claims that Tehran is taking advantage of the situation by moving short-range missiles into the country.
It should also be mentioned that Israel is in a political crisis, with no government set up yet and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu under threat of indictment. Thus Tel Aviv urgently needs some sort of national security crisis that would cement Netanyahu’s position and secure his freedom and allow him to remain in power.

Israel wants US to get bogged down in a swan song suicidal war with Iran as envisaged in the Yinon plan. Trump is facing impeachment and is desperate enough to start a most devastating war in the region. However, Israel will burn too.
We don’t ask from the U.S to start any war, that’s only in your twisted mind. We can take care of them ourselves trust me, we have the technology to punish Iran for a very long time. Our real problem as mentioned, is that we still have Netanyahu the corrupted scum as the PM, and he can’t even deal with small terrorist organizations, so we need to get rid of him first. After that, we can start the war, goodluck.
Sorry, this pathetic third rate hasbara nonsense may work on some Arabs and western brainwashed population, but most educated people understand that Zionism by its very nature is an imperialist parasitic creation that lives on western charity. The devious Brits created two cancerous entities in 1947 and 1948, so-called Pakistan and “Israel”, both are charity cases, corrupt failed states and will not last long.
blah blah blah, what are you going to do about it? we don’t ask any of you what to do in our land, and I’m not some Hasbara bot, I am a real Israeli that tells you to fuck off and mind your own business.
Typical Zionist nonsense and lies. Your moth eaten entity is nothing, with 6 million parasites it will be destroyed. The facts of history and demographics never lie. I have been to occupied Palestine and seen the scared little Zionist liars and child killers. Your ilk are good at playing internet keyboard warriors, but will be first to use your dual passport when the missiles start hitting Ben Gurion and other hovels. You sound like a little punk with a potty mouth, grow up and post adult comments.
I have no dual passport you bitch, only Israeli one and I’m proud of it. Your Palis in Gaza will taste our bombs like they deserve very soon, Hamas and anyone else that supports them. After that, we will deal with the shia goat fuckers and the Persians.
Resorting to childish profanities is the hallmark of abject losers :) now go back to playstation or whatever. The US taxpayers are footing the bill for that too.
I have better things to do thanks, I just came to this site on this beautiful Friday (28 degrees here and sunny outside) to counter people like you. I pay my own taxes, too bad for you :]
Moron, if you are not a bot, then you are doing a great job making more enemies for the hated Yids based on your idiotic comments.
Its not your land shithead
Palestine dates back to pre-Biblical times. The Zionist fake narrative circa 1948 Hollywood Metro-Goldwyn-Meyer production.
Parasite is a good description of the leach state. All over US TV they cry, cry, cry for money for their poor holohoax BS ‘victims’. The money goes to the scam artists running the sham relief. I checked out their incomes. My, they make $Ms doing this and how much do the ‘poor’ get? Right. Just another Israeli scam, like their entire government. It’s nothing but a giant blackmail and pedo scheme. It’s how they get their gifts of $Bs from every nation in the west…but, they still have poor? I guess they even screw their own sheeple. Oh, that’s right…their entire gov is corrupt and half are indicted. Situation normal for Zionists. They don’t dare attack Iran proper, they’d get an ass kicking far worse than they got in Lebanon…and they know it. Cowards, liars and thieves…that pretty much sums up the Zionist infection called Israel.
Iran stronk, we scare of Iran. Please no, tell mullah not to shoot, too stronk. plz :(
Waaa, waa, waaa.
zman stronk, zman can destroy israel in 1 comment!!
Most of the informed world is now quite aware of the fake Hollywood created Zionist narrative and that is why the parasites are having a hard time with BDS and growing anti-Zionist global movement. Even in US the students on campuses are now openly opposing the murderous and cancerous Zionist blood suckers. The murdering land rustlers in Palestine have been exposed as nothing but worthless child killers and cowards who hide behind the US.
He is trying, he is a corrupted man and I don’t believe a single word that comes out of his mouth. Nonetheless, when it comes to the Iranian nuclear program both Gantz and Bibi will act the same, we won’t let them ever get it, even at the cost of a war. I hope everyone understands it.
To answer your question, yes he is using the media for his own personal interests.
So when bibi lies its bad but if gantz lies about non existan iranian nuclear program is ok?
Double standards much?
Gantz doesn’t lie, he is a honest person and I feel more confident when he is my PM, and not the corrupted shithead Bibi.
good good good – about time to meet the squatters with some hot lead or missiles to the extent that it presages the ultimate downfall of the squatters – please note – the squatters will be missed by no one since the squatters, as thieves and murderers, have no value to anyone living. so peace in the Middle East requires that the squatter’s existence in palestine and elsewhere is terminated.
