Israel, Lebanon agree on
WASHINGTON, Aug 18 (Xinhua) -- The United States
blocked an Iranian cargo plane's flight to Syria last month as it was carrying
missiles and launchers to resupply Hezbollah, the USA Today daily newspaper
reported on Friday.
The U.S. blocked the plane after intelligence
analysts concluded it was carrying sophisticated missiles and launchers to
resupply Hezbollah in southern Lebanon.
Eight days after Hezbollah's war with Israel began,
U.S. diplomats persuaded Turkey and Iraq to deny the plane permission to cross
their territory to Damascus, a transfer point for arms to Hezbollah, the
officials were quoted as saying.
The episode was detailed by one U.S. intelligence
official who saw a report on the incident, and was confirmed by a U.S. official
from a second intelligence agency and by a diplomat with a foreign government,
the newspaper said.
The officials and diplomat's accounts illustrated the
quiet support the United States gave Israel during the 34-day war, even
enlisting help from Muslim nations where acting on Israel's behalf was
politically anathema, it said.
Israel and U.S. President George W. Bush have accused
the Shiite-dominated government of Iran of shipping the Shiite militia
increasingly sophisticated weapons by way of Syria, the newspaper said.
The report also said the Iraqi and Turkish
governments would not discuss the incident, Iran's United Nations mission denied
trying to send Hezbollah weapons, and claimed that the intelligence officials
had not provided reports, satellite photos or other evidence to corroborate the
sequence of events.
Their account could not be independently verified, it
