“Iranian spies 'used Red Crescent to enter war zones' US embassy cables reveal claims that intelligence agents and weapons were smuggled into Lebanon and Iraq. Iran abused the strict neutrality of the Iranian Red Crescent (IRC) society to smuggle intelligence agents and weapons into other countries, including Lebanon during the 2006 war with Israel, according to claims in a leaked US embassy cable. The Iranian source, who had knowledge of the Red Crescent's overseas operations, said the Iranian intelligence service breached the society's rules of neutrality to send members into Lebanon to support the Shia militia force, Hezbollah militia during the Israel-Lebanon war. Among those allegedly sent in were members of the IRG's elite al-Quds force, a covert group of intelligence officers and special forces chosen to export the Iranian revolution.
