The satellite images show two new white hangars, each roughly 30 yards by 20 yards, used to store short- and medium-range missiles eight miles northwest of Damascus in Syria.

Coons said tensions in the broader region supported the idea of more funding for Israel, citing the ongoing war in Syria and Iran's recent use of a stealth drone.

Recent satellite imagery taken outside Syria's capital Damascus show that Iran has constructed a likely missile base that can strike anywhere in Israel, according to media reports. According to the report, the base is being operated by Iranian Revolutionary Guards.

On Wednesday, though, ImageSat revised its understanding of the al-Kiswah building targeted in December, identifying it too as a possible missile silo. Two of the bases were set close to the Syrian-Israeli border.

Iran has filed a grievance against Israel with the UN Security Council over Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech at the Munich Security Conference last week, saying it constitutes a direct threat to the Islamic republic. Tel Aviv had launched the biggest air raid operation in over three decades after intercepting an Iranian drone in Israeli airspace. "We will act without hesitation to defend ourselves".

Alibaba to buy major food delivery app Ele.me
For Baidu , it's another exit from a business considered peripheral to its core operations in search and artificial intelligence. An acquisition would hand Alibaba the biggest chunk of Chinese online food delivery and pit it directly against Meituan.

Press reports earlier this year revealed that Iran had set up 10 military bases on Syrian territory, mainly for training pro-regime Syrian militias.

But when asked by Cheney what the USA military's role against Iran in Syria should be, Votel replied, "Countering Iran is not one of the coalition's missions in Syria".

The figures could not be independently confirmed, but Danon said the Iranians 'speak about 100,000 troops under their control in Syria'.

On Capitol Hill Tuesday, the top USA military commander for American forces in the Middle East said Iran was "increasing" the number and "quality" of its ballistic missiles it was deploying to the region - when asked during a House Armed Services Committee by Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., about reports Iran had moved more missiles into Syria. "They are testing the worldwide community".

"They've told us in no uncertain terms that if this threat continues - they keep making rockets that can hit the airport and do a lot of damage to the state of Israel - they are going to have to go in", Graham said.
