Israel exposes new Iranian path to smuggle weapons to Hezbollah – IDF: That ship has sailed
BREAKING: Israel exposes new Iranian path to smuggle weapons to Hezbollah via the sea, through the Port of Beirut.
Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, said at the Security Council meeting that Israel possesses intelligence information proving that Iran is smuggling weapons to the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah through the Port of Beirut.
Ambassador Danon said that Iran smuggled dual-use items to advance Hezbollah’s rocket and missile capabilities, with the help of Syrian officials.
“For the last year, the Iranian Quds Force has been smuggling missile manufacturing equipment purchased from CIVILIAN companies through CIVILIAN ports directly into the hands of Hezbollah. Well, Iran, if you’d planned to keep this a secret—that ship has sailed”, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit tweeted.
In September, PM Benjamin Netanyahu exposed facilities near Beirut’s international airport where the Iran-backed Hezbollah terror group was converting rockets to guided missiles.
