The UN has published a report revealing Iranian weapons shipments to Syria in violation of international sanctions. The report focuses on three large illegal Iranian arms shipments, two of which were bound for Syria. “Iran has continued to defy the international community through illegal arms shipments,” the report read. “Syria continues to be the central party to illicit Iranian arms transfers." Western diplomats hope that the report will add pressure on Iran to comply with UN sanctions aimed at curtailing its nuclear program, which Iran claims is peaceful, but the west fears may be used to develop weapons.
