It’s in the same location where Israeli airstrikes destroyed another factory last year.

Israel uncovered the factory, built just outside Latakia, a port city close to the Russian Khmeimim Air Force base. Syria’s government and the terrorist group Hezbollah allegedly helped Iran in building the facility, according to the report.

Reportedly, the missile parts came from Italy, China and other Asian nations through firms created by Syria’s Scientific Studies and Research Center.

Additionally, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps on Thursday revealed a new ballistic missile with a reach of almost 621.4 miles, reported their official news agency Sepah News. That range is 42 percent of the distance between Iran and Israel.
