A western intelligence source has claimed to the BBC that Iran is building a new permanent military base in Syria just to the south of Damascus.
This came as Israel claimed it will not tolerate an Iranian military base in Syria as the country borders the Zionist entity.
“Israel will not let that happen,” he said in September.
Although the BBC acknowledged it was difficult to verify if Iranian troops were present and that there were no signs of heavy weaponry, western intelligence have emphasized to the BBC that it is a military installment.
Iran is a sworn enemy of Israel and a backer of the Syrian government in its fight against terrorism.
