Israel sent a warning to Lebanon that it might take action if it is determined that the Beirut airport is being used by Iran to smuggle weapons on civilian planes to the terrorist group Hezbollah.  According to Arabic news media al-Arabiya based in Dubai, Iran is using cargo space on Meraj Airline which has non-stop flights between Tehran and Beirut to transport weapons to Hezbollah. In the past, Israel has targeted Damascus International Airport in Syria in response to similar transfers of weapons.
