MEMBERS of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard have been found among Hezbollah guerrillas slain by Israeli forces in southern Lebanon, Israel’s Channel 10 television reported today, citing diplomatic sources.

It said the Iranians were identified by papers found on their bodies, but gave no further details on how many were discovered or when.

Neither the Israeli military nor Hezbollah representatives in Beirut had immediate comment on the report.

Iran, like fellow Hezbollah patron Syria, insists its support for the Shiite guerrilla group is purely moral.

Israel said many of the rockets being fired against its civilian and military targets are Iranian made, and that Hezbollah fighters taking on its forces trained in Iran.

Washington also accuses Tehran of actively funding Hezbollah.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards are traditionally very close to fellow Shiite Muslims in Hezbollah and were deployed in south Lebanon in the 1980s.
