Islamic Republic crosses The Line

Nigerian authorities seized 13 containers of Iranian weapons Israeli officials believed were to be smuggled to Hamas in Gaza, authorities said.

Nigeria’s secret service announced rocket launchers, grenades and explosives camouflaged as building materials were seized at the port of Lagos after they were unloaded from an Iranian ship, the Haaretz daily reported Thursday.

After unloading the weapons, the ship left the port, the Israeli newspaper said.

“On opening the first container, the service operatives discovered rocket launchers, grenades and other explosives,” Nigerian State Security Service spokeswoman Marilyn Ogar said. The paper said the Nigerian authorities had received intelligence concerning the ship’s cargo before it docked at the port.

The clearing agent in charge of unloading containers reportedly offered to bribe Nigerian customs officials to transfer the containers to a terminal for screening outside the port, the Israeli daily quoted Nigeria media reports saying.

Recently Afghan police said they had seized 22 tons of explosives stashed in boxes marked “food, toys and kitchenware” that were reportedly imported from neighboring Iran.

The discovery was made in a customs office in the western province of Nimroz on the Iranian border, deputy provincial police chief Mohammad Musa Rasouli told the AFP.

“We found these materials hidden in a 40 foot shipping container that had come from Iran. The explosives were disguised as merchandise like food, toys and kitchenware,” he said.

Iranian agents trained, armed and directed death squads in Iraq with the aim of killing senior Iraqi politicians and undermining British and US troops’ operations, according to military intelligence reports in the war logs that the Guardian has examined.

Iranian-supplied rockets containing “neuroparalytic” agents that are designed to incapacitate their victims while another warns that an armored vehicle containing chemical gas is being prepared for a large-scale offensive, backed with multiple rocket launches, against the Green Zone in Baghdad where the US and British embassies and the main Iraqi government buildings are situated.

These are just a few of them that I approached here but it is only the top of the iceberg.
