Iran recently stepped up its shipments of sophisticated weapons and military aid to Lebanon’s Hezbollah, according to US and Western intelligence reports.

The shipments arrived at the Beirut Rafic Hariri International Airport on an Iranian military cargo plane on Tuesday.

The shipments included a sophisticated positioning system (GPS) to manufacture unguided rockets and convert them into guided missiles, increasing the risk of its threats to Israel’s security.

The Iranian plane left Beirut on Wednesday for Doha and then headed to Tehran on Thursday evening.
