„Hezbollah is fighting in Syria with American weapon systems supplied by the United States to the Lebanese Army, a senior Israel Defense Forces officer speaking under conditions of anonymity said Wednesday. According to the officer, Israel has supplied the U.S. administration with evidence, including photographs, of American-supplied armored personnel carriers being used by Hezbollah in Syria.
The senior officer added that while it is not clear under which circumstances Hezbollah obtained the American APC’s from the Lebanese Armed Forces, he believed that it was part of ‚a deal‘ and that Hezbollah has recently ‚strengthened its grip on the main national institutions in Lebanon,‘ including its army. Lebanon is currently the fifth-highest recipient of U.S. military aid in the form of light and medium weapons and armored vehicles, supplied by the Obama administration in order to help the Lebanese fight Islamist terror organizations.“ (Anshel Pfeffer. „Hezbollah Fighting in Syria With U.S. Weapons Supplied to Lebanese Army, IDF Says“)
