Although this site is known since 2010, the highly secured location saw an uptick in construction and excavation in 2017 and 2019, the year which 4 additional large tunnels were excavated. This site includes numerous tunnels of various sizes but the last four tunnels excavated shows a possible layout found in other underground facilities related to Iran Ballistic Missile Program. Satellite imageries show a circular excavation resembling to an excavated hardened Launch Position found in Haji Abad and Khorgo Ballistic Missile Bases.

Assessment : After years of being classified as an underground storage facility, this site now have common features with known Underground Ballistic Missile Bases thus likely to be related to Iran Ballistic Missile Program.
