Hezbollah mercenaries trained by the Islamic Republic of Iran returned to Lebanon

Iran Press News: translation by Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi.
The highest circulation daily Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera reported that Hezbollah forces are dispatched to Iran in order to receive training by the Islamic regime and are then returned to Lebanon. This publication related that after completing an intensive Commando course in Iran, these forces are sent back to perform their duties, such as night raids on Israeli soldiers in southern Lebanon. The training of these offensives and their commanders is under the guidance of the Lebanese Imad Moghniyeh and the commander of the al-Quds Brigade (a.k.a. The Jerusalem Brigade which Ahmadinejad hails from), Commandant Ghassem Soleimani and his second-in-command, Mustafa Rabei.

Corriere della Sera also added that a 30-member group, who were on a recent training visit to Iran, was instructed on the operations of the “Fajr” Missiles 3 and 5, the Russian-made SAM (Surface-to-Air Missiles) 7 and the Chinese QW1.
