The Saudi newspaper Ouchaz reported Thursday that South American security forces foiled a massive Hezbollah attack.
According to the report, forces raided a munitions storage facility in the suburb of La Paz, one of Bolivia's two capitals. The foiled plans included intended attacks on Bolivia, Peru, and Chile. The raid revealed mechanisms and material demonstrating the ability to produce a 2.5 ton bomb. A four-wheel-drive vehicle being prepared for deployment as a car bomb was also seized.
The report comes soon after the Kuwaiti daily Al Jarida cited the report of an Iranian Revolutionary Guard commander's aide, according to which responsibility for Iranian weapons and missile plants has been transferred to Hezbollah in Lebanon.
According to the report translated and distributed by MEMRI researchers, the factories Iran recently established in Lebanon are at a depth of over 50 meters and are protected from bombings. The missiles are manufactured in different wings of the factories and are finally assembled into one unit.
Al Jarida further brings an anonymous report that a few years ago, after Israel destroyed an Iranian weapons factory in Sudan which supplied weapons to Hezbollah, and bombed the arms supply that was intended for Hezbolla via Syria, the Revolutionary Guards began a project to build weapons factories in Lebanon.
