Fox News: Iran is building military tunnels in Syria-Iraq border
Fox News reported that the regime of Iran is building underground tunnels to stockpile and transport heavy military equipment in the Syrian-Iraqi border. Fox has presented new satellite images and Western intelligence services as the source of this report and announced that the credibility of the images has been confirmed.
According to Fox News, the location of these tunnels is the “Imam Ali” military base in the eastern border of Syria with Iraq.
The report says the first satellite image was taken on October 5, in which the construction of the tunnel is visible. The second image was taken after the entrance of the tunnel was covered up.
According to the report, cited by several sources, the tunnels are in the final stages of construction and soon will be operational.
Earlier this year Fox News had reported that Iran is building a border corridor near the same Imam Ali base between Iraq and Syria with the goal of transporting Iranian weapons and forces
Last week the New York Times reported that Iran is in the process of secretly transporting hundreds of short-range missiles to Iraq. According to the NYTimes, the missile arsenal could be used to target Israel, Saudi Arabia, or American forces in the region.
