Netanyahu: Iran Sending Nuke Deal Money to Terror Groups on Border

(Times of Israel) Adiv Sterman - The Iranian regime is set to increase funding for terrorist organizations bent on Israel's destruction, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Tuesday during a visit to the IDF's Northern Command headquarters. "The money that will flow to Iran-sponsored terrorist organizations will be used for one stated purpose - to destroy Israel." Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon noted: "All is not quiet on the Golan front, and those who seek for it not to be quiet are the Iranians, who are trying to send proxies to conduct terror attacks against us....Representatives of the [Iranian] Revolutionary Guards are in fact waiting for the implementation of this bad deal with world powers in order to bring more money to Hizbullah, more to other terror groups - in both the Golan Heights and the Palestinian arena." An IDF officer said that hundreds of Hizbullah members are present in the Syrian Golan, and that Tehran has been behind several recent attacks against Israel. According to Israel Channel 2 TV, Hizbullah has also upped its presence on the Lebanese border with Israel, joining the Lebanese Army on patrols and exercises, despite limits set on the group's movements in south Lebanon after the Second Lebanon War in 2006.
