Israel has discovered a new Iranian precision missile factory being constructed near the northwestern city of Safita, Syria, with the help of the Syrian government and the terror organization Hezbollah. In order to build this facility, Iran bypassed international sanctions through straw companies established by Syria’s Scientific Studies and Research Center. The companies, the Organization of Technological Industries (OTI) and the ANAS Group, ordered missile parts from Italy, China, and other eastern Asian countries.
