Hizbullah Receives Arms Via Turkey

(IsraelNN.com) Turkey, which has offered to send troops to an international force in Lebanon, has been a major point of transfer for weapons to the Hizbullah terrorist organization, it was openly revealed at a United States State Department press briefing Thursday. An Israeli official had anonymously reported on Israel's request from Turkey to stop Iranian shipments to Hizbullah which go through Turkish territory.

State Department spokesman Tom Casey told reports asking about the apparent contradiction, "I have seen press reports about it. My understanding is that the issue of potential arms shipments through Turkey and through other countries are things that we have talked about...with the Turkish Government. I understand that they are very concerned about this issue as well and we're fully convinced that they are taking and doing what would be necessary to prevent arms transfers from going through."
