Iran power expands in southern Damascus suburbs
 (Zaman Al-Wasl)- Iran's Revolutionary Guard and allied Hezbollah militia have expanding their territory of control in the southern suburbs of Damascus, Building dozen of bases and outpost.

Zaman Al-Wasl source says Iran has set up training fields, missile launchers and drone bases under Hezbollah's command and other sectarian militias operating in southern Damascus.

Most importantly, a drone base that runs by Hezbollah militia sits in the south of Sayyda Zainab, the holy town for Iran. 

The base, which constructed in 2017, is situated inside a camp affiliated by the Air Force Intelligence.

The Iranian presence in southern Damascus pushed Israel to launch wild-scale airstrikes over the past few years.

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

The Iranian regime has spent an average of $15-16 billion in Syria since the conflict erupted nine years ago, while the annual support afforded by to Iranian citizens is approximately $8 billion, reports say. 
 
The eight-year-old war has claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands and forced 13 million people from their homes, half of whom have left their shattered homeland.
