Iran is establishing an underground tunnel to store missiles and large-scale weapons in Syria’s al-Bukamal, near the Iraqi border, Fox News reported on December 10 citing satellite images and “intelligence sources”.
“The structure, housed within the Imam Ali military base in Eastern Syria, is estimated to be nearly 400 feet long, 15 feet wide and 13 feet deep.
The first image–taken by Image Sat International (ISI), an end-to-end geospatial intelligence solutions company, where construction of the tunnel can be seen–was captured on Oct. 5,” the Fox News report claimed.
“Two weeks later, a shed was used to hide the tunnel entrance from the air. Large dirt piles appeared at the opposite end of the tunnel as excavations continue,” the report continues.
Over the past year, various Israeli and US sources have repeatedly speculated that Iran is creating a large-scale military base on the Syrian-Iraqi border. These reports are used to justify Israeli military actions against supposed ‘Iranian targets’ in Syria.
