Israeli Defense Minister Says Iran Uses Syrian Facilities to Make Weapons

Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz said Iran has used more than 10 military facilities in Syria to manufacture its advanced missiles and other weapons. Immediately after that, there were no immediate comments from Iran and Syria. However, Damascus has refused to comment on similar allegations in the past, and Tehran has denied it is building up manufacturing capacity in the Middle East.


Iran has converted facilities in Syria into production facilities for medium- and long-range precision-guided missiles and weapons

Israeli Defense Minister said.

Speaking at a conference in New York, Gantz presented a map of the military installations of the Center for Science and Research (CERS), a Syrian government agency that allegedly manufactures missiles and weapons for Iran.

Israeli strikes on Syrian targets have intensified recently. So. The Israeli strike, which the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says targeted a warehouse used by Iranian-backed groups, was the second strike on Damascus airport in just a week.

In addition, Israeli strikes have repeatedly targeted the Masyaf area, where Gantz said an underground weapons factory threatens Israel and the region. The Israeli defense minister added that Iran is also working to build missile and military industries in Lebanon and Yemen.

Since war broke out in Syria in 2011, Israel has carried out hundreds of strikes against its northern neighbor.

Although Israel rarely commented on individual strikes, it admitted that it would not refrain from them. Israel Defense Ministry officials make no secret of the fact that the ongoing air campaign is necessary to keep Iran from gaining a foothold on its doorstep.

      Something before Israel did not make delusional statements.
      If Iran needs something, it will do it on its own territory.
      And if Syria produces weapons, it will use it itself. She is at war.

        After 2006, the Lebanese forbade Hezbollah to produce ammunition on its territory, now Iran is doing this for it in Syria.

          Then it is Hezbollah that makes its own ammunition in Syria.
          And Iran helps her.
          Here in this option there is logic. Quite possible.

            Hezbollah is a political party with a fighting koil that exists on Iranian grandmothers. She can't do anything on her own. hi

              If Hezbollah finds people for military operations, then it will definitely find people for the production of ammunition. Especially if they are well paid.
              And Iran, I believe, is not sorry to spend some money and materials for production, if this is to the detriment of Israel.
              Iran, as far as I understand, sends its military to Syria, not production workers. Helps Assad in the fight against terrorists. Well, at the same time it helps those who are fighting the United States and Israel.

                Different qualifications are required - you can bring up a battalion commander from a local village, an engineer and a head of a missile production workshop will have to be imported from Iran or paid salaries to Syrians with a relevant education. Once again, for Persian grandmas and Persian technologies.

                Without the Aerospace Forces and MTR of the Russian Federation, Assad almost flew off with all Iranian assistance provided until 2015

                  Of the components, any redneck in a couple of hours under the guidance of an instructor will learn how to assemble a rocket.
                  I don’t know the exact layout of the Hezbollah rocket, but in theory - there are all imported parts - a GPS unit with gyroscopes from a cheap Chinese quadrocopter, rudder thrusts controlled by this unit, and a ceramic nozzle. And you don’t need to cut off the pipe and stuff it with “caramel” under pressure.

                      What acceptance?
                      Flew in the right direction, and that's enough.
                      Moreover, it is likely to be knocked down.

                        They have a large number of different Iranian missiles, they overload the LCD with the first volleys, the rest work on targets. Arabs and Persians learn fast.

                        Well, Iran needs to know if its missiles will penetrate the Iron Dome or not.
                        But again, these are deliveries from Iran, and not in Syria.

                        That's exactly what missiles are produced in Syria for Hezbollah and the IRGC, most likely not the most complex, but massive

    Israel considers it possible to calmly bomb a neighboring country in which there has been a war for decades. Fuck the West. And they bomb. At the same time, when Russia decided to protect the life of the Russian-speaking population, they settled on it with the whole world, and they are trying to pass off any strikes on military infrastructure as strikes on civilians. At the same time, not taking into account that Ukraine itself kills its citizens and I take into account any infrastructure.

    And on the territory of Poland, for example, a hub for unloading, transporting and repairing weapons and military equipment from 40 countries for Ukraine, as well as a center for the training and treatment of soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the transfer of mercenaries...

    Mr. Gantz should reinterpret tete-a-tete with his Polish colleagues: they will explain to him that everything is normal ...

    Well, yes! It remains for the West to declare that Russia produces "Caliber" in Armenia.

    Hmm, something among the Jews became ill with the mind and ingenuity.
    Maybe because the US State Department allocated money not for the development of the Israeli military-industrial complex, but only for the purchase of American weapons?
    Who in their right mind would transfer the production of weapons to a country where
    Is there a way to destroy them?
