Israel: Iran Building Long-Range Rocket Factory in Syria


Israel’s Channel 2 television reported Tuesday that Iran is building a facility in northwest Syria to manufacture long-range rockets, and showed satellite images of the site under construction. The report compared images of buildings at a rocket factory near Tehran to structures at the Syrian site and said there was a strong resemblance between them.

Meanwhile, U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said Tuesday: “Today, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani threatened that Iran would break its commitments under the JCPOA if the United States chooses to take additional steps to hold Iran accountable for its destabilizing behavior outside of the JCPOA. Iran cannot be allowed to use the nuclear deal to hold the world hostage. Iran, under no circumstances, can ever be allowed to have nuclear weapons. At the same time, however, we must also continue to hold Iran responsible for its missile launches, support for terrorism, disregard for human rights, and violations of UN Security Council resolutions. The nuclear deal must not become ‘too big to fail.'”
