Skip to comments.Google Earth Photos Reveal Syrian Scuds
Posted on 10/17/2010 12:47:14 AM PDT by ErnstStavroBlofeld
Israeli defense experts were still sounding alarms this week over Google Earth images made public Friday by the Israeli daily Haaretz. The satellite photos, taken March 22, show Scud missiles ready for deployment at a Syrian base at Adra, where earlier reports suggest Syria is training Hezbollah militants in the use of missiles that threaten large parts of Israel.
The photos show five 11-meter-long Scuds at the Adra base. Three are on trucks in a car park. Two others are in a training area where 20 to 25 people can be made out along with about 20 vehicles. One of the two missiles appears to be mounted on a mobile launcher; another is on the ground.
Earlier reports have suggested that the Adra base, located in a deep valley surrounded by 400-meter mountains, has concrete tunnels leading deep underground where the missiles are apparently stored in protected silos.
In 2006, Hezbollah rocket fire into Israel precipitated Israeli air strikes and a ground invasion of Lebanon. Hezbollah's month-long barrage of rockets deeply unsettled Israel; with Scud missiles, Hezbollah can strike all the major cities in Israel.

Thanks for posting this.
OK, everybody knows what the Syrians, Iranians and Hizbollah are up to and what is being done to counter this provacative build up? NOTHING. This is Rhineland, Sudentenland all over again and the Western response to it is identical to what was done on the 1930’s and we all know where that led us...
Creepy scuds bump.
As George Santayana say.......
Wisdom comes by disillusionment.
Isn’t it a shame, stain on humanity that the lessons of WWII were not learned? All that violence for nought.
Saddam’s WMD’s finally appear?
Half a km south of this Scud rally point, look out for the long road running NE-SW with extremely obvious entrances to underground bunkers.
Do you think bunker busters could open them up, wide?
Not open them. . . collapse them permanently.
Just who do you think will authorize the use of bunker busters? Obama? Or are you thinking about the Israelies using them? Cause Obama ain’t gonna allow it. That’s for damn sure.
And the ironic part is that the Scud is just an upgraded V-2.
Prayers for Israel!
I realize not many are inclined to read the following, but it needs to be written again: the final “empire” to rise against Israel is the Islamic Empire. It will be led by Turkey (Gog/Magog/Meshech and Tubal - all areas in central and western Turkey), Iraq, Iran, Syria, Egypt, among others.
This is all foretold in the Bible: Ezekiel 37 & 38.
The stage is set. The players are in place. God is moving to bring judgment on these idolatrous, Islamic nations and we need to get right with Him.
Take this advice for what you paid for it.
Just an infant formula and milk plant...nothing to see here...
And there are several more such roads nearby.
Whatever is going on there, it’s big.
I’m more inclined to plug the holes, wherever the roaches are going in.
Could someone fuss with the contrast and brightness a bit to bring out more details?
14 days in October.
“Nuclear Terror” ping, maybe?
Thanks ErnstStavroBlofeld, but what’s the problem? ;’)
The is only a small part of the world military build up.
They should give the latitude and longitude so we can look them up in Google Earth ourselves.
Oh, forget that.
FWIW, that area is loaded with AAA and SAM sites! There is certainly something there they want to protect...
Lol, and I thought it was an aspirin plant.
Thanks for clearing that up. Now I can be at peace with myself that all is well still. /s
Easy enough to figure out since they have it on Google maps. I just expanded the view, found the highway (5) and the site is just north of the highway between the two cities Adhra and Al’Qutayfah.

Somebody must have given those guys a bunch of bulldozers as presents. They sure love pushing sand around!
Peace, fellow Freeper: I just asked a question concerning the abilities of bunker busters, not whether they should be used.
Thanks. Always wondered how they work.
You were 22 miles off.
You’re right. Peace.
Jittery lately, I’m in lock-and-load mode against Oslama 24/7. Have yourself a free bunker buster video on me.
(turn the volume down)
Thanks for the video!
I thought Iraq was going to sit this one out. From what I recall reading, that was one of the reasons THIS coming mess looked like the “one”. because in the past, Babylon was right mixed up in the middle of it.
Yeah. . .they penetrate deep and then blow, collapsing the structures. Exactly how they were designed.
Quick...print more “World Peace” bumper stickers!
Not following you. Our Points are about 22 miles apart but yours places me on a road next to some farm land south east of Dimashq. Mine (deg, min, & sec.) places me directly on the base pictured above.
