Iran building missile factories in Syria and Lebanon - Benjamin Netanyahu



Israel's prime minister has said Iran is building sites in Syria and Lebanon to produce precision-guided missiles.

 
Benjamin Netanyahu accused Iran of turning Syria into a "base of military entrenchment as part of its declared goal to eradicate Israel".


Iran's forces are supporting President Bashar al-Assad in Syria's war and it backs Lebanon's Hezbollah movement.


Mr Netanyahu's comments came as he held talks with UN Secretary General António Guterres in Jerusalem.


Mr Guterres is on his first visit to the region since taking office in January.
