Iran Arming Hizbullah Via Turkey

[Ha'aretz] Barak Ravid - Iran is arming Hizbullah with missiles sent via Turkey, according to intelligence received in Israel. Turkish authorities are unaware of the arms shipments. A senior Israeli government source said that Brig.-Gen. Yossi Beiditz, head of the Israel Defense Forces research department, last week told EU ambassadors that Iran continues to transfer arms and equipment to Hizbullah. Long-range missiles are transferred on flights using Turkey's airspace, as well as overland though Turkey, under the guise of civilian cargo, to Syria and then Lebanon. According to Beiditz, some of the missiles are "capable of reaching the Dimona area from Beirut."
