Iran has been using civilian aircraft to fly military personnel and large quantities of weapons across Iraqi airspace to Syria to aid President Bashar Assad, according to a Western intelligence report seen by Reuters.
Iraq says it does not allow the passage of any weapons through its airspace. But the intelligence report was reported to have said Iranian weapons have been flowing into Syria via Iraq in large quantities. Such transfers, the report says, are organized by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.
