Hezbollah Building Syrian Missile Base to Strike Israel

While much of Hezbollah's efforts of late have been directed at the ongoing Syrian civil war, the terrorists still have their sights set on the Jewish state. The Times of Israel's Stuart Winer reports that the terror organization is building a base from which to strike northern Israel:

The Lebanese terror group Hezbollah has reportedly been constructing a fortified base inside Syria that it may be using to store Iranian ballistic missiles with the range to hit Israel.

Satellite images of an area on the northern Lebanese-Syrian border show that Hezbollah has been consolidating positions it conquered from Syrian rebels in June 2013, global intelligence company Stratfor said Wednesday.

Photos show several facilities in the region around Qusair, including one large compound surrounded by an earthen berm. Villages up to four kilometers (2.5 miles) from the base have been razed to enable clear observation of the territory, and tunnels have reportedly been dug back under the border and into Lebanon.
