Iran reportedly suspects sabotage in the explosion of an arms shipment destined for Hezbollah.
After an explosion last Saturday in a Tehran suburb killed at least 15 people, Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, the military arm of Iran’s theocracy, imposed a news blackout, London’s Daily Telegraph reported. The arms reportedly were to be transported to Hezbollah, the terrorist organization in Lebanon, in violation of a U.N. arms ban imposed after the Israel-Hezbollah war two years ago.
