fxn.ws/2N9ieQp
#Qeshm Fars Air, an Iranian civil aviation company, is suspected of smuggling arms into #Lebanon, destined for the militant group #Hezbollah and #Iranian weapons factories.
On July 9, involved a #Boeing 747 that departed from an air force base in #Tehran, stopped for a short layover at the international airport in #Damascus, #Syria,
and then continued with a rather “uncharacteristic flight path” to the #Beirut international airport, where it landed shortly after 4 p.m. local time.
According to flight data obtained by Fox News, the route passed over northern Lebanon, not following any commonly used flight path.
A regional intelligence source who asked to remain anonymous said: “The Iranians are trying to come up with new ways and routes to smuggle weapons from Iran to its allies in the #MiddleEast, testing and defying the West’s abilities to track them down.”
The 2nd flight was conducted on August 2. Flight number QFZ9960 landed in #Beirut at 5:59 pm, after departing #Tehran's international airport two and a half hours earlier. This time, the plane did not stop in #Damascus, but it followed a slightly irregular route north of #Syria.
Qeshm Fars Air is considered one of the various pseudo-civilian airlines used for arms-smuggling by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and the elite Al-Quds force led by Qassem Soleimani. Back in October 2017, #Trump imposed sanctions on the #IRGC and the Al-Quds force.
