BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:45 A.M.) – The Israel-based Image Satellite International company released a new satellite image showing the construction of a land bridge between Syria and Iraq.

Based on the image, the construction is taking place between the Syrian border city of Albukamal and the Iraqi border city of Al-Qa’im. This border is controlled by Hashd Al-Sha’abi (Popular Mobilization Units) on the Iraqi side, and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) on the Syrian side.

As reported by Al-Masdar last month, Iran is preparing to link Tehran to the Mediterranean via an international highway and railway. This highway and railway will allegedly link Tehran to the Lebanese capital city of Beirut.

For Israel and the United States, Iran’s ability to transport oil, supplies, and weapons from their capital to Syria and Lebanon will be a major issue. Israel has already targeted several Iranian arms convoys in Syria over the last five years. With the opening of the international highway, Iran will be able to bypass the sanctions imposed on their country and Syria.

The reopening of this highway is incredibly important to the Syrian government, as the Western sanctions have prevented foreign oil shipments from reaching their port cities. The oil shipments, which are mostly Iranian, have been a rarity since the Trump administration intensified their blockade in the eastern Mediterranean.

Likely the US will encourage the SDF to cross the river once IS takes Al Bukamal after Hezbollah is shrinking its numbers.

Daesh destroyed all the barriers and roadblocks. Why were the Jews not crying then?
Now they want to make a border truck stop as they have in other areas of Syria. But this is the one that we know Iran will have loads of missiles at!!! What’s wrong, hate having competition? Zio underwear too tight? Its a border station truckstop big deal. Zios will be there to destroy it so they can sell you everything through their ports monopoly and trade war sanctions.

Iran is building new crossing on Syria-Iraq border for smuggling weapons and oil: satellite images Subject 34 • a day ago Don’t lie, you know everything Ruski. Your intelligence agencies know exactly when IRGC plane lands in Syria and when they give rockets to Hezbollah. They also know this place is used to transfer weapons, and it is now marked by the IAF, goodluck. The company that took those pictures is ISI, an Israeli one. The data they provide is well analyzed by IAF specialists, and they will decide if we should strike this place or not. If you ask… Read more »

All in all ? A very long, structured, carefully-written dream. Hezbollah has been getting better and better equipment ranging from metric-precision late generation of Fateh SRBMs all the way to Mid-Range air defenses such as the Taer and Raad systems, copies of the Russian Buk-M1s. Israeli governments and military officials alike have publicly admitted that all the items that they have so far managed to trace, track and bomb are only the tip of the iceberg and that hundreds more such convoys get past the border unnoticed every months. “Experts” like you said the exact same thing about Hezbollah’s capabilities… Read more »
