Israeli media reported that a new unit of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps smuggles supplies and logistics for the Quds Force.
The unit is headed by a former Quds Force official with extensive connections in Iran, Syria, and Lebanon, identified as Gal Frasat, the Israeli weblog Intellitimes reported. According to Iran International's investigations the correct name of the agent is Ali naqi Golparast.
Among its duties will be transferring military equipment to pro-Iranian militias, particularly in Syria and Lebanon, the report adds.
The Qods Force manages most of Iran’s military, intelligence and even political affairs in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen.
There have been several headlines regarding Iranian arms sales in recent years, particularly regarding smuggling weapons to terrorist militias in Gaza, Lebanon, and Syria, as well as supplying Russia with weapons during their war on Ukraine.
Last week, Ukraine approved sanctions against the Islamic Republic for a period of 50 years for its supplying weapons to Russia which have wrought havoc to cities in Ukraine. A massive 328 lawmakers voted in favor of the bill.
Among the sanctions were a ban on trade, the transit of Iranian resources, flights, and transportation within Ukraine, according to Ukrainian media.
SkyNews reported this week that Iran had been selling ammunition to Russia for its invasion of Ukraine. It was the first official confirmation of what Kyiv and Washington had long suspected.
