Libyan Rebels Sold Hezbollah And Hamas Chemical Shells
he DebkaFile media source has alleged that senior Libyan rebel
"officers" sold Hezbollah and Hamas thousands of chemical shells
from the stocks of mustard and nerve gas that fell into rebel hands when they
overran Muammar Qaddafi's military facilities in and around Benghazi, Libya.
Word of the capture touched off a scramble in Tehran, and among the terrorist
groups it sponsors, to gain access to these unconventional weapons.
The story goes on to state that the
rebels offloaded at least 2,000 artillery shells carrying mustard gas, and 1,200
nerve gas shells for a cash payment amounting to several million dollars.
US and Israeli intelligence agencies are said to have tracked the WMD
consignments from Eastern Libya as far as Sudan in convoys secured by
Iranian agents, and Hezbollah and Hamas guards. They are not believed to
have reached their destinations in Lebanon and the Gaza Strip, apparently
waiting for an opportunity to get their deadly freights through without the US
or Israel attacking and destroying them ...
Editor's Note: Although some believe the
DebkaFile media is an Israeli propaganda asset, the possibility the story is
true compels us to print it. In the past, this particular media has issued
accurate reports, particularly of a military nature. A big question would be why
would Libyan rebels, locked in mortal combat with a well equipped Qadaffi run
military, sell weapons they could use when the going inevitably gets rough?
On the other hand, war profiteering
is a very old pursuit, and many, many people would sell out their own cause for
the money. Further, in view of recent credible reports that Iran was
attempting to move very dangerous military materiel into Lebanon and Gaza via
the naval route from Syria, it's hardly implausible to think that Iran would
finance such a weapons purchase.
The bottom line is, the military
confrontation throughout the Middle East is still building to a crescendo, and
the inevitable (and unthinkable) will occur when the Islamic republic of
Iran makes their final move to take Jerusalem.
