Iran’s Rocket Route to Israel

In late January, 12 trucks crossed the Syrian border into Lebanon. When they were stopped at a checkpoint, the Lebanese Armed Forces found the trucks were brimming with ammunition and weapons, including Katyusha rockets that have been raining down on Israel since July 12. The convoy was waved on and traveled unhindered to its final destination: Hizballah terrorists in southern Lebanon. The Lebanese army said the ammunition belonged to the “resistance,” which the Lebanese government considers to be legitimate. It’s this uninterrupted flow of weapons, mostly made in Iran, that has allowed Hizballah to stockpile some 12,000 Katyusha rockets and fire more than 3,000 rockets into Israel over the past 29 days.
