Arms from Syria, Iran to Hezbollah through Turkey

Posted in Uncategorized by fartashphoto on August 13, 2010

A secret meeting of Iranian and Turkish intelligence officials has led to a new weapons supply route for Hezbollah, a report says.

Iranian and Turkish intelligence officials recently signed an agreement that establishes territorial continuity for Turkey, Iran, Syria and Lebanon, and guarantees a constant supply of weapons to Hezbollah, a report in the Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera said.

The new weapons route will allow the transport of sophisticated weaponry including rockets and missiles to pass through Syria to Lebanon and Hezbollah, the Italian newspaper said. The transfer would be coordinated by Turkish and Iranian agents and Hezbollah operatives, and the route secured when the truckloads of weapons pass through, the Italian paper said.

“The Iranians are interested in building a similar network to that established in Sudan and their final goal is to assist Hamas,” Olimpio said.

In Khartoum, Sudanese, Iranian, and Palestinian agents operate with the help of Egyptian collaborators he said. Iran is trying to set up a similar network for Hezbollah, he added.

On the other hand, Lebanese Defense Minister Elias Murr said Wednesday he would reject any U.S. military assistance to Lebanon’s army if it comes with conditions that the weapons not be used against Israel.

Murr was commenting Wednesday on a decision by U.S. lawmakers to suspend $100 million in aid over concerns the weapons could be turned on Israel and that Hezbollah may have influence over the Lebanese army.

Murr said those who want to help the Lebanese army but place conditions on how their funds or weapons are used, should keep the money.

Iran possesses four S-300 PT missiles

Posted in Uncategorized by fartashphoto on August 4, 2010

Iran has obtained four S-300 surface-to-air missile systems despite Russia’s refusal to deliver them to Tehran under a valid contract, a semiofficial Iranian news agency claimed Wednesday.

The Fars news agency, which has ties to Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guard, Iran’s most powerful military force, said: Iran received two S-300s from Belarus and two others from another unspecified source. Fars didn’t elaborate, and there was no official confirmation of the report.

Russia signed a 2007 contract to sell the S-300s, but so far has not delivered. The report comes as Iran faces increasing pressure from the West over its nuclear program.

Former Belarus’ leader Stanislav Shushkevich, now an opposition politician, said that Russia in the past has used Belarus as a conduit for weapons deliveries to rogue nations.

“Belarus might well have used the established “gray” schemes to deliver S-300s to Iran,” Shushkevich told The Associated Press. “The deliveries of S-300s from Belarus to Iran would have been absolutely impossible without Russia’s knowledge and sanction.”

The Department has targeted several new commanders and organizations that are part of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps, or IRGC, and the Quds Force for providing support to alleged terrorist organizations such as Hezbollah, Hamas and the Taliban.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says his country does not care over the latest round of tough American sanctions against it.

His response comes a day after U.S. Treasury Department sought to tighten the sanctions imposed on Iranian organizations believed to be supporting terrorism.

It is the beautiful bird which gets caged

The mothers of U.S. hikers urged the Iranian government to either prosecute or free the three held since last year after reportedly crossing the border into the country while hiking in Iraq.

In a statement, the mothers of Shane Bauer, Sarah Shourd and Josh Fattal also called for more consular access for their children and for them to be able to call their families.

They also asked that Shourd be moved from solitary confinement.

“Shane, Sarah and Josh have been detained in Iran without due process for almost 11 months, in continued violation of Iranian and international law,” the mothers said.

On the other hand, Hamas (Iran’s client) captured and abducted Israeli soldier, Gilad Shalit on 25 June 2006 by Palestinian militants in a cross-border raid. He was abducted through the Kerem Shalom crossing (in Israel), and has been held as a prisoner in the Gaza Strip by Hamas since then.

Hamas has refused requests from the International Committee of the Red Cross to allow the ICRC to visit Shalit. Several human rights organizations have stated that the terms and conditions of Shalit’s detention are contrary to international humanitarian law. In exchange for his release, Hamas is demanding the release of all female and underage Palestinian prisoners held in Israel, as well as a further 1000 prisoners, a number of which are convicted by Israeli courts on terrorism charges.

Islamic Republic could free two of its agents after they released the French lecturer, Clotilde Reiss.

Ms. Reiss was sentenced to 10 years in prison for spying and e-mailing photographs of the post-election protests. Later, it was commuted to a fine of $285,000, said her lawyer.

The Iranian regime and its clients (Hamas, Hezbollah and Taliban) abduct people and put pressure on their governments to release their agents all around the world. They’re not much difference with Somalia pirates and these regimes; only difference is that pirates are on the water.
