Foreign Minister Israel Katz wrote to the UN Security Council that “over the past months, while Israel is engaged in an ongoing armed conflict on numerous fronts, Iran is accelerating the pace of its weapons transfers to Hizbollah… Iran is doing so by ground, using the porous Syrian-Lebanese border, as well as by air and sea”.
