Turkish customs officials intercepted the four trucks on suspecion of carrying military equipment from Iran to Syria earlier this month.

The governor of Kilis province in Turkey said the trucks were confiscated at the Oncupinar border crossing into Syria after police received information about their cargo, according to Dogan news agency.

One of the trucks was carrying six six-meter long cylinders, and the remaining three were carrying 66 tons of sodium sulphate, that could be used for manufacturing chemical missiles.

Turkey sent a team of experts to examine the content of the trucks, and UN nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, requested a report on the contents from the Turkish authorities, the newspaper said.

According to the cargo documents, the material belongs to an Iranian tannery company, but it is believed that this is a cover, and the cargo is intended for chemical weapons production.

This is not the first Iranian delivery of weapons material that the Turkish authorities intercepted by the Turkish authorities. In August and March of last year, the authorities found a delivery of light weapons on planes that had arrived from Iran, and in September Turkey stopped a ship delivering cargo from Iran to Syria, without reporting what was on board the ship.

In the past, Turkey has agreed to intercept deliveries of cargo from Iran on based on foreign intelligence sources, including from Israel.

Now tell me..Why will Iran send sensitive equipment for the Syrian military through Turkey? This doesn't make sense..Can't they just use cargo planes to transport stuff like that? I smell a setup here...

Very odd story.  Sodium sulphate is an easy to produce, common commercial product used to manufacture a wide range to items.  Nothing "chemical weapons" or "missile" related about this material. And why ship via Turkey?  There are much easier routes to Syria from Iran, including air and sea.  I am dubious about the entire claim. 

Am I missing something??
Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd.

My thoughts EXACTLY...Someone's really trying to hinder Iran -Turkey relationship..If Iran wants to send the Syrian government anything, why send it through Turkey considering that Turkey's already imposed sanctions on Syria and will cease anything bound for Syria- be it weapons or civilian goods??? And even the fact that the Iraqi border is wide open now and easy to access Syria than before??? It doesn't make sense..What I can say is that the Syrian rebels are desperate and will do anything that will paint Iran/Syrian relationship in a dark light..The French and Americans have already been accusing Iran of arming the Syrian government..I say Iran should double whatever supplies she's sending Syria at the moment.

Those behind the chaos in Syria have failed to achieve the Libyan scenario they'd hoped for..They're now in a stalemate and all they can do now is murder anyone that disagrees with them. Time's on Syria's side..The main actors in the chaos, however, don't have the time luxury on their side.There's a good chance Sarcrazy will be kicked out in the next elections which is due in a few months time..The US is incapable of doing anything with their elections looming as well..And once Egypt is back in the driving seat in the Arab world, the Saudis - Qatari chaos alliance better run for cover..It's natural that Iran will have a good relationship with Egypt from now on..Most of the Egyptian MB had a great deal of support from Iran during the Mubarak years..The least they can do is re-establish relations with Iran.

This was first published by today's zaman which is an Anti Iranian Turkish newspaper. But the entire claim is foolish I think. If Iran wanted to send something of high importance to Syria, air routes were the best ones. Not via trucks from Turkey.

Thank you..They do their propaganda on the bases that people are so stupid they'll believe anything they publish...What it's rather doing is exposing them for who they are.

Kinda reminds me of the latest fake terror plot by Hezbollah in Thailand..Seems the Thai authorities got really pissed about the hype and damage it did to their tourist industry..They punished the Zionists for the trouble they caused by OFFICIALLY recognizing the Palestinians state..Their stupidity will end them in ruin.
