IRAN: PASDARAN CALL ON HEZBOLLAH TO STRIKE ISRAEL


Tehran, 6 Nov. (AKI) - In a comment just published by Iran's weekly Sobhe Sadegh, the mouthpiece of the Iranian revolutionary guards corps, the Pasdaran calls on Lebanon-based Shiite militas Hezbollah to strike Isreal with its missiles. Iran is widely believed to be arming Hezbollah, along with Syria. "It would be appropriate if Hezbollah hit (Israel's capital) Tel Aviv with its missiles to make its Zionist counterpart understand that there is no secure place in the Zionist geography." The comment also suggests the timing of the strike which "should coincide with the next international meeting of a certain importance," possibly referring to an upcoming UN Security Council gathering to discuss sanctions against Iran over its nuclear programme.A week ago, Ali Akbar Mohtashamipour, a former Iranian ambassador to Syria who is considered a top sponsor of Hezbollah, said that Iran has started re-arming Hezbollah.Hezbollah engaged in a 34-day war with Israel this summer in Lebanon which ended on 14 August with a fragile ceasefire to be enforced by UN-backed international peacekeeping troops in the the country's south.
