Using high-resolution images from the Eros-B satellite, ISI Intelligence analysis confirms Syria is building missile factories bearing great resemblance to Iranian missile factories

Last July, media reports revealed that Iran was building missile factories in Syria. According to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), “In’s first report, on June 28, 2017, it stated that this new facility had been constructed in Wadi Jahannam and that it is under direct Iranian oversight.”

“According to the report, the construction of the facility, which is located in Wadi Jahannam near the coastal city of Baniyas, began about a year ago, and it will begin operating at the end of this year,” MEMRI added.

High-resolution images from the Eros-B satellite show that Syria is building missile factories that bear great resemblance to missile facilities in Iran, according to ISI Intelligence. A comparison of pictures shows that the factory near Banias in Syria is very similar to an Iranian missile factory near Tehran.

According to ISI’s intelligence team, the site, which is still under construction, includes one entrance that leads to the road to the site. The site also includes administration, production and storage areas. Moreover, images show that there is also an area that is apparently dedicated to the production of ammunition.

According to ISI’s analysis, the Syrians, with a high degree of certainty, are building missile factories that are very similar to missile factories in Iran.
