Hizbullah Training at Syria Missile Base, Satellite Images Show

(Ha'aretz) Avi Scharf - The Syrian army has a Scud missile base near Damascus, according to recent satellite photos. The photos also suggest that Hizbullah forces are being trained in the Scuds' use at the base. The photos, taken on March 22, show five 11-meter-long missiles (the length of both the Scud B and the Scud C) at the Adra base. In May, the Sunday Times of London reported that shipments of weapons from the Adra base were going to Hizbullah, and that Hizbullah had been given a section of the base for barracks, warehouses and a fleet of trucks to transport weapons to the Lebanese border.
