Iranian Assistance to Hizbullah

On July 29, 2006, the London Arabic daily Al-Sharq Al-Awsat published a detailed article on assistance extended to Hizbullah by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, as reported by a high-ranking Revolutionary Guards officer who had trained Hizbullah naval units. According to the officer, Hizbullah has a diver unit and a naval commando unit.

Al-Sharq Al-Awsat(London), July 29, 2006 

“Hundreds of Hizbullah fighters currently confronting Israel’s military array took part in special training courses at the Revolutionary Guards bases in Tehran, Isfahan, Mashhad and Ahvaz. According to a high-ranking [Revolutionary] Guards officer, who trained one of the Hizbullah naval units, Hizbullah has many surprises up its sleeve.

The Iranian officer added that “thanks to the presence of hundreds of Iranian engineers and technicians, as well as North Korean experts brought [into Lebanon] in the guise of [domestic] servants by Iranian diplomats and by the staff at the Iranian representations and offices in Lebanon, Hizbullah has managed to build a 25-kilometer underground [tunnel]. Each opening in this [tunnel] measures 12 to 18 square meters, and has a mobile floor and a semi-mobile ceiling. Each four openings are connected by a passage that allows fighters to pass easily [from one opening] to the other.

  1. Why doesn’t Israel get more support from the World community? It is absurd that everyone else has fallen into line to support a terrorist organization. Let’s hope the U.S. and Britain have the courage to offer unwavering support to Israel.

  2. Bill;

    I couldn’t agree more. The international community demanding a cease fire does nothing but hand another victory to terrorism. Throughout the history of warfare no one ever won a shooting war by limiting their opponents casualties.

    Thanks for the comment
