At the road of People’s Palace, Soleimani and the senior Iranian and Hezbollah commanders have been settled where members of the Syrian Republican Guards, Hezbollah and fellow Shiite militants are stationed.

Also, well-informed military sources told Zaman al-Wasl that Iran is building new missile facility near Damascus in a base controlled by Maher al-Assad, Bashar's brother, and the de-facto commander of the elite Fourth Armored Division.

The construction of the secret hangars has begun under supervision of Iranian military experts. 
 
Iran seeks to produce and develop its mobile short-range ballistic missile, Burkan-2H, or Volcano-2H. Also, to produce Golan missiles, according to the source.

Fresh satellite images of the Iranian site northwest of Damascus showed the construction of huge long hangars.

Maher al-Assad, on contrary to his brother, has showed a blindness loyalty to Iran where most of its military personnel and allied militias, especially Hezbollah under the protection of the Fourth Division in Syria.

 The Assad regime has started the construction of missile facilities hit by Israel in 2018.

Israel launched wild-scale airstrikes in 2018, targeting over 50 Iranian targets in the war-torn country.

Israel wants to prevent by all means the existence of a "Shiite corridor" linking "Tehran to Damascus," Top Israeli officials say.

Also, an Iranian facility, which had been destroyed by the Israeli airstrikes last May near Damascus International airport, was reconstructed.

The warehouse, which is located next to the glass house, was the Iranians headquarters in the International Airport.
 
The Israeli strikes was the largest air force operation in Syria in over 40 years, came in response to an Iranian rocket barrage at the Occupied Golan Heights and Israel warnings that it would not tolerate Tehran’s attempts to entrench itself militarily on Israel’s northern border, according to The Times of Israel. 

The Iranian regime spends an average of $10-12 billion in Syria annually, while the annual support afforded by the government to Iranian citizens is approximately $8 billion, reports say. 

Since the Syrian revolution erupted in 2011, more than 560,000 people have been killed, and more than 6 million people have been displaced.
