Iran's Revolutionary Guards helped Hizbullah terrorists plan and execute the attack two weeks ago on an IDF Navy ship, killing four of the officers aboard, according to an Arabic daily. Al Sharq Al Awsat, published in London, reported details on Iranian assistance as told by a senior Revolutionary Guard officer. The article was translated into English by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI). The Guards also have helped Hizbullah build underground facilities, including command and control rooms which Iranians are operating jointly with Hizbullah terrorists."The Guards have also built Hizbullah underground storerooms in the Beka Valley, at a depth of no more than eight meters, which hold huge amounts of missiles and ammunition," according to the report. "Hizbullah's missile unit includes some 200 technicians and experts trained in Iran. Hizbullah has three missile units, each supervised by a staff of 20."
