Report: Iran building permanent base in Syria

Iran is constructing a permanent military base south of Damascus, BBC quoted a western intelligence official.

 

The military compound is being built on a site previously used by the Syrian army on the outskirts of Al-Kiswah, 14 kilometers south of Damascus.

 

It was further reported additional buildings were constructed on the base's premises, but their purpose or the presence of the Iranian army could not be verified.
