Iran delivers GPS components to Lebanon for Hizballah rockets

Iran has delivered GPS components to Lebanon for making Hizballah’s unguided rockets into precision-guided missiles, US and western intelligence sources told Fox News. Iran’s Fars Air Qeshm flight number QFZ-9950 departed Tehran International Airport on Tuesday. Later that day, the Boeing 747 jet touched down in Syria’s capital Damascus before continuing to Beirut. Western intelligence sources said the GPS devices were sent to manufacture precision-guided weapons in Iranian factories in Lebanon, similar to those Iran operates in Syria and Yemen. DEBKAfile: The Iranian plane was not intercepted at any point on its flight from Tehran via Damascus to Beirut.  The Israel air force has abstained from flying missions over Syria since the deployment of advanced Russian S-300 air defense systems a month ago, Iran taking advantage of this to  step up its arms deliveries to Hizballah, as DEBKAfile first reported on Oct. 14.

    Russian S-300 air defense systems protect Damascus, but what about Tehran, any serious airstrike defense?

    The longer israel waits to attack Hhamas, the stronger they become with more destructive weapons that will injure more israelis.

    We see how hamas brushes off Israel’s empty threats, as they continue to escalate terror against Israel.

    When will Israel learn?

      NOTHING BUT THE KILLING OF HAMAS’ LEADERSHIP WILL LEAD TO ANY QUIET ON THE GAZA FRONT. AS LONG AS ORDINARY PEOPLE ARE BEING KILLED, THIS WILL STOP NOTHING. THE MOMENT ISRAEL GOES AFTER HAMAS’ LEADERSHIP, THE FASTER THIS B/S WILL STOP. UNFORTUNATELY, ISRAEL IS RULED BY LEADERS THAT DON’T SEEM TO LEARN THESE VALUABLE LESSONS AND INSTEAD DEPEND ON US BEING IN A CONSTANT STATE OF WAR SO THAT OUR USELESS LEADERS APPEAR TO BE USEFUL IDIOTS.

    Russia is protecting Iran for its own selfish purposes. Russia was never a friend of Israel. They always supported Arab states and supplied them with weapons which threatened and killed Israelis. A Communist never changes his stripes. Russia is a whore for contracts and will sell out its humanity to gain supremacy and a new Soviet Union. Iran needs to be confronted by the other Islamic terror states like Saudi, Qatar, UAE, and all the others. This is a case of kill or be killed in the Sunni-Shia conflict. Russia-Iran-Syria-Turkey – all barbarians expanding their hegemony and their territory for their own evil purposes (religious and totalitarian).

      Iran is paying Russia very well for all the help that it needs in Syria while Bibi is just blowing hot air in Russia’s direction. The 120 billion dollars that Obama released to Iran for the nuclear deal is mostly being spent on Syria by Iran. Iran is paying Russia billions for the S-300s in Syria. Assad cannot afford these himself. The majority of Russian oligarchs are Jews who don’t give a damn about the danger that Israel is in with Russia now protecting all Iranian operations and bases in Syria that will eventually be used to attack Israel from. I am sure that these rich oligarch billionaire Jews have some kind of connections with Putin but they are doing nothing so far to help prevent Holocaust II which Russia is complicit with Iran for allowing it to be prepared under its nose.

    Since Russia is selling all kinds of weapons to Israel’s enemies, Israel should start supplying the Free Syrian Army (FSA) with MANPADS. Also, Israel should start selling Ukraine weapons as well since Israel has in the past rejected selling them weapons but now that Russia has broken all of its promises to Israel, Israel should do the same to Russia. Bibi foolishly still trusts Putin even after all of this.
