Mordechai Ben-Porat the former minister and chairman of the Center for the Heritage of Babylonian Jewry announced on Sunday that he had received reports that a convoy of heavy trucks carrying ammunition and missiles were headed from Iran to Syria by way of Iraq.

Ben-Porat said that he had received the information from personal contacts located in the city of Irbil in northern Iraq. According to his sources, 75 trucks were in the convoy heading from Iran to Syria.

"All the while, the authorities in Iraq are turning a blind-eye and sitting on their hands," Ben-Porat said in a statement.
