REVEALED: Iran uses civilian airlines to smuggle arms to Hezbollah

Iran is utilizing civilian airlines to transport weapons to the Hezbollah terror organization in Lebanon, intelligence sources say.

A Fox News report Monday quoted Western intelligence sources who have uncovered “unexpected routes” taken by Iran in an apparent attempt to avoid detection of its arms-smuggling into Lebanon.
The sources identified two rare and unusual Qeshm Fars Air flights from Tehran to the international airport in Beirut over the past two months.

The first flight in July departed from an air force base in Tehran, stopped for a short layover at the international airport in Damascus and then continued with a rather “uncharacteristic flight path” to the Beirut international airport, the sources said.

The route passed over northern Lebanon, not following any commonly used flight path.

The plane carried components for manufacturing precise weapons in Iranian factories inside Lebanon. The US and Israel have already exposed Iran’s weapons factories in Lebanon, Syria and Yemen.

The second flight in August landed in Beirut after departing Tehran’s international airport. This flight also followed a slightly irregular route north of Syria.

“The Iranians are trying to come up with new ways and routes to smuggle weapons from Iran to its allies in the Middle East, testing and defying the West’s abilities to track them down,” the source told Fox News.

Qeshm Fars Air is considered one of the various pseudo-civilian airlines used for arms-smuggling by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), the report noted.

Blatant violation of Security Council resolutions
Israel has long warned that Iran is taking advantage of civilian airlines to arm Hezbollah.
In November 2016, Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations (UN) Danny Danon warned the Security Council that Iran was utilizing civilian airlines to transport weapons to Hezbollah.

In a letter to the Council, Danon said it was the IRGC that was responsible for the smuggling, and he outlined how they were doing it.

“Iran is using airlines such as ‘Mahan Air’ to supply Hezbollah with the capacity to enhance its missile arsenal. The arms and related materials are packed in suitcases by the Quds Force in Iran and transferred directly to Hezbollah operatives,” he wrote.

Danon charged that Iran’s actions are “in blatant violation of numerous Security Council resolutions,” including resolutions 2231 and 1701.

Resolution 2231 endorsed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action nuclear agreement and added more restrictions on Iran, while resolution 1701 put in place the ceasefire ending the Second Lebanon War with Hezbollah.

Hezbollah was in possession of roughly 7,000 rockets in 2006, and the Lebanese terror group now has more than 120,000 missiles aimed at Israeli cities, hidden behind human shields in the towns under their control.





这些消息来源确认了过去两个月里从德黑兰飞往贝鲁特国际机场的两次罕见且不寻常的Qeshm Fars Air航班。






报告指出,Qeshm Fars Air被认为是伊斯兰革命卫队用于武器走私的各种伪民用航空公司之一。





“伊朗正在利用像Mahan Air这样的航空公司为真主党提供增强导弹防御能力的能力。这些武器和相关材料由驻伊朗圣城部队用手提箱包装,并直接转给真主党特工。




以赛亚书 49:22 – 24 主耶和华如此说:“我必向列国举手,向万民竖立大旗,他们必将你的众子怀中抱来,将你的众女肩上扛来。 列王必做你的养父,王后必做你的乳母。他们必将脸伏地,向你下拜,并舔你脚上的尘土。你便知道我是耶和华,等候我的必不致羞愧”。

你不要怕他们,因那为你争战的是耶和华你的神。( 申命記 3:22 )
