Report: Israeli Airstrikes Destroy Missile Factory in Syria

(Asharq Al-Awsat-UK) Israeli satellite imagery analysis company ImageSat International has published footage of an Israeli airstrike in Syria on Friday that destroyed four weapons production buildings "probably used for mixing and casting components of missile engines and warheads....The aim of the attack is to weaken the production of missiles in Syria, which Damascus may be manufacturing for the Lebanese militia, Hizbullah." A number of foreign, Iran-backed, paramilitary fighters were reported killed. Another target was a research center where surface-to-surface missiles are developed and stored, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. Iranian experts are believed to work in the center, which has been hit several times in the past.
