UN Report: Iran Behind Arms to Hamas, Fueling Middle East Terror
by TheTower.org Staff | 07.10.14 2:18 pm
A Wall Street Journal editorial published Tuesday called attention to what
the outlet described as Iran's critical "role in fueling Middle East
terror," a dynamic that the Journal read alongside an ongoing Israeli
campaign - Operation Protective Edge - to halt weeks of escalatory rocket
and missile fire from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip:
More than 200 Palestinian rockets have descended on Israel in recent days,
triggering an Israeli counteroffensive that was still taking shape as we
went to press Tuesday. But as the drama plays out in the Gaza Strip and
southern Israel, it's worth noting the role Iran-now under new and allegedly
moderate leadership-has played in this latest spasm of violence.
The Journal specifically cited the March interdiction of a Panamanian-flag
shipped whose cargo - which included advanced M-302 missiles - had
reportedly traveled from Syria through Iran and Iraq before being stopped by
Israeli commandos in the Red Sea en route to the Gaza Strip. Tehran's denial
of any involvement sits uneasily alongside a leaked United Nations report
that seemingly confirms the Islamic republic's role in the shipment while
blasting Tehran for violating a UNSC embargo on Iranian arms transfers.
Israeli Defense Forces Spokesperson Peter Lerner, speaking this week on the
recent barrage of rockets, noted that the launch Tuesday of an M-302 rocket
was confirmation that Iran has been supplying Gaza with weapons:
Military spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner said Tuesday's first launch of the
Syrian-made M-302 rocket toward northern Israel proved that Iran was indeed
supplying Gaza with the weapons, and that some had slipped through despite
He said Israel suspects Hamas still possesses dozens of other such missiles
with a range of more than 160 kilometres, putting 5 million Israelis within
"We know when we are successful in stopping them. Obviously, they have been
successful in smuggling some of these in," Lerner said. "We know there are
these rockets in Gaza they have longer range, they have more firepower and
they are more accurate."
Accusations of Iranian support to Gaza are nothing new - the 2013 State
Department Report on Terrorism, published in April, blasted Tehran for
having "historically provided weapons, training, and funding to Hamas and
other Palestinian terrorist groups."
