Israel outs names of high-profile Iran, Hizballah operatives

In the ongoing secret war Israel is conducting against Iran and Hizballah, the IDF Thursday named top executives of Iran’s secret project for converting Hizballah’s rockets to precision-guided missiles under the direction of Iran’s Gen. Qassem Soleimani. The supervisor of the project was identified as Muhammad Hussein Zada Hejazi, an Iranian brigadier general, who is the commander of the Lebanon Corps in the Quds Force.  Ali Achar Maruzi, head of the IRGC’s logistic branch, is in charge of transferring the equipment and components for the project from Iran through Syria to Lebanon. Majid Noab heads the technological side of the project. And a Hizballah bigwig Fouad Shakar directs the project for the Lebanese group. The US has a standing offer of $5m bounty for Shakar’s capture for having taken part in Hizballah’s 1983 massacre of 241 US marines in Beirut.

DEBKAfile: This confidential information was released to inform Soleimani and Hizballah’s Hassan Nasrallah that their organizations are deeply penetrated by Israeli intelligence and their operations are an open book.
