Iran directing Hamas, Hezbullah operations in North and South America

April 20, 2011

WASHINGTON — Western intelligence sources said Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps has facilitated assistance and coordination between Hamas and Hezbullah. The sources said the two Iranian proxies have begun working together on operations outside the Middle East in an effort to bolster Teheran’s policies.

"This is a strategic watershed for Hamas, which until at least two years ago refused to become directly involved in foreign operations," an intelligence source said.

Moussa Ali Hamdan is escorted by Paraguayan security forces to a legal hearing in Asuncion on June 16, 2010. Hamdan was detained for his alleged involvement in financing Hezbullah in South America. AP
