The Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) has been operating a signals intelligence (SIGINT) listening station in the Golan Heights, providing intelligence for Lebanon's Hezbollah since 2006, a US congressional report published last week suggests.

While the report alleges Iranian intelligence activities in the Golan, it also painted a picture of limited capabilities that have fallen short of their goals."Iranians reportedly planned to create two additional SIGINT stations in northern Syria, which were expected to be in operation by January 2007, but no information indicates that they are currently operating," the report stated.



"The technology at the two established SIGNIT stations indicates that Iran’s capabilities are still limited, with little scope for high-level strategic intelligence gathering," it added.
