Concern Iran Using Syria Earthquake ‘Aid’ To Smuggle Arms To Lebanon

  • As countries and organizations continue to send humanitarian aid following the catastrophic earthquake that hit Syria and Turkey last week, Israeli officials and American national security experts have warned that the Islamic Republic of Iran is potentially preparing to send arms shipments through Syria to Lebanon to support Revolutionary Guards in Damascus and Hezbollah terrorist fighters in Lebanon.
  • Following the aftermath of the earthquake, the head of the Islamic Republic’s Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Quds Force, Brigadier General Esmail Qaani, was spotted in the western Syrian city of Latakia to observe humanitarian aid and the losses from the earthquake victims, according to various photographs and videos circulating on social media.
