According to ISI, ‘if the bombed site was indeed a missile factory, it could allow for the production and assembly of different SSM

The factory was built in the western compound of the base between 2014 and 2016, and was surrounded by a wall to separate it from the rest of the military base. The entrance to the factory passes through the base.

‘It is possible that the location of the factory inside what looks like a regular military base was chosen in order to camouflage its real purpose,’ ISI said…”
