Senior IDF officer says Islamic Republic helps Hezbollah by providing money and military training

According to the officer, who serves in the Golan division, the Islamic Republic planted explosives along the Israel-Syria border last April.
In April, Israeli fighter jets allegedly hit Syrian and Hezbollah targets near the city of Qalamoun the Syrian-Lebanon border.
“It’s clear that Iran is behind all of the terror attacks here [in the Golan] in the past two years,” the officer was quoted by Haaretz as saying. “The Iranians are using the border – they establish units – whether it’s [Imad] Mughniyeh, [Samir] Kuntar, and more – to carry out [the attacks].”
The officer added that the Iranian regime was transferring funds, providing training and sending advisers to Syria to help the Islamist group Hezbollah.
