Iran’s ayatollah regime is reportedly building yet another weapons storage facility in Syria. Recently released satellite images revealed Iranian paramilitaries working on a major construction project at the Imam Ali Military Base near the Iraqi-Syrian border.
According to intelligence officials, the new facility may pose a threat to Israel and U.S. military personnel in Iraq.
The images were released on the heels of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s visit to Israel.

The Jewish state has warned of a lingering military threat posed by the ayatollah regime.
“There is something else plaguing our region, which is the unremitting Iranian aggression and terror,” stated Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “I want to express my appreciation for the strong position that the president, you and your administration put forward against Iran.”
This latest construction came after the Israeli military bombed a similar Iranian facility in Syria back in March.
