The first flight has taken place on July 9 when the Boeing 747 plane has left base of the Air Force in Tehran, has made a short stop at the international airport of Damascus, and then has gone to the international airport of Beirut with enough "an uncharacteristic trajectory of flight", and has arrived there at 16:00 local time. The route of the plane passed through a northern part of Lebanon that isn't a usual trajectory of flight. "Iranians try to think up new ways and routes for arms trafficking from Iran to the allies in the Middle East, testing and ignoring abilities of the West to trace them" — I have told a source to TV channel. Intelligence services believe that the plane transported components for production of precision weapons at the Iranian plants in Lebanon. The second flight has been made from Tehran to Beirut on August 2. The plane didn't do a stop in Damascus, however "went a little unusual route to the north from Syria".
