Satellite images published by an Israeli intelligence and imagery firm show damage caused to a site near the Syrian city of Masyaf in an alleged Israeli airstrike earlier this month.
According to ImageSat International (ISI), the airstrike on March 12 targeted several buildings that served as an entrance to an underground facility.
ISI assesses that the site is linked to the nearby Scientific Studies and Research Center, known as CERS or SSRC, which according to Israel, is used by Iranian forces to manufacture precision surface-to-surface missiles.
The area around Masyaf, which is thought to be used as a base for Iranian forces and pro-Iranian militias, has been repeatedly targeted in recent years in attacks widely attributed to Israel.
