“IRGC soldiers of the Islamic Republic are at the border of occupied Palestine,” said the tweet.
A twitter account affiliated with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) tweeted photos of IRGC soldiers with blurred faces supposedly on the border of Israel.
The same photos were previously posted on December 17, 2014 on a blog affiliated with the Iranian Army (newss.blog.ir) with the soldiers’ faces visible. According to MEMRI, the blog claimed the photos were taken in southern Lebanon in the Beqaa and Baalbeq region, and that the blog post was titled, “We are arriving… near the Mother of Corruption, the accursed Israel;soon we will pass over their bodies, Allah willing.”
The date “October 24, 2014” can clearly be seen in the photos uploaded on the blog with a caption that reads “Uploaded @ Military.ir.”
In early October, the Iranian-backed Lebanese militia Hezbollah took responsibility for detonating two bombs in the Mount Dov region along the border with Lebanon, wounding two IDF soldiers.
