Iran Caught Smuggling Weapons to Hezbollah

An Iranian company called Qeshm Fars Air has used civilian aircraft to transfer weapons to its terrorist proxy in Lebanon, according to Western intelligence sources. The first flight took place last month.

  • Meanwhile, Israel continues to carry out airstrikes in Syria against Iranian assets. The Times of Israel reported that airstrikes were carried out this week between the towns of Masyaf and Wadi Uyun.
  • In response to reports that Iran is supplying missiles to terrorist groups in Iraq, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman said Israel “will handle any Iranian threat, no matter where it comes from.”
  • As the U.S. plans to take leadership of the U.N. Security Council, Nikki Haley, U.S. ambassador to the U.N., said the council will discuss the instability that Iran is attempting to sow in the Middle East, as well as atrocities in Nicaragua, Syria, and other nations.
  • During the High Holy Days, The Fellowship is distributing clothing and food vouchers to more than 100,000 low-income families, elderly, and children in Israel to help them celebrate Rosh Hashanah.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship’s Ami Farkas on the meaning of the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah, which begins at sundown Sunday, Sept. 9.
