200 Suicide Bomb Vests Captured in Truck from Syria

Somewhere in Syria, there’s a factory mass-producing suicide bomb vests.
The Associated Press reports that Iraqi Interior Ministry spokesman Maj. Gen. Abdul-Karim Khalaf confirmed that 200 explosive belts were captured in a truck crossing into Iraq from Syria yesterday. There is no doubt they were designed to murder as many ordinary Iraqis as possible.

Today also marks the first anniversary of Hezbollah’s attack on Israel that triggered last summer’s Hezbollah-Israel war.
We know that Syria is also resupplying weapons (some originating in Iran) to Hezbollah as fast at it can so they can once again be aimed at civilians throughout northern Israel.
