Report: Satellite Shows Iran Arming Gaza

By    |   Monday, 26 Nov 2012 11:33 AM

Intelligence satellites have caught rockets and other weapons being loaded onto a cargo vessel in Iran that may be headed for Gaza.

The Sunday Times of London says Israeli spy satellites made the disturbing discovery at the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas.

The weapons were being loaded on the cargo ship last week — at the same time a ceasefire was agreed to following eight days of ferocious attacks in Gaza.

In those assaults, Israeli military forces hammered Hamas positions while Iranian rockets were fired at targets in Israel. A ceasefire was brokered by Egypt and announced on November 21.

Analysts told the Times weapons-loaded ships may be headed bound for Gaza by way of the Red Sea, Sudan, and Egypt.

“Regardless of the ceasefire agreement, we will attack and destroy any shipment of arms to Gaza once we have spotted it,” an Israeli defense source told the newspaper.

The shipment is believed to include Iranian made Fajr-5 medium-range rockets.

Those rockets are the same models fired towards Tel Aviv and Jerusalem during Operation Pillar of Defense, which started with the killing of Ahmed Jabari, chief of the Gaza military wing of Hamas.

The Sunday Times also cited Israeli government officials as speculating that Iran may be bringing long-range ballistic missiles into the North African Arab state of Sudan.

Those missiles could be fired into Israel from the African nation, the officials fear.

In late October, the Sudanese government accused Israel of launching an air strike that destroyed one of its military factories in Khartoum.

The weapons plant was said to be building Iranian Shebab missiles under license from Tehran, and allegedly for Hamas.
