A deadly Iranian plane crash on July 15 was caused by the explosion of ammunition destined for Hizbullah, Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera reported.
According to the report, the pilot of the Tupolev plane, which was making its way from Tehran to the Armenian capital of Yerevan, sent an emergency warning 16 minutes after takeoff.
Shortly afterwards, the Caspian Airlines plane crashed near the city of Qazvin, northwest of Tehran, killing all 168 on board.
According to sources in the Middle East, the plane was meant to transfer the arms from Iran to Armenia, and from there to Syria through Turkey, and finally to Lebanon (NaharNet).
In most parts of the world, the switch away from Daylight Saving Time proceeds smoothly. But the time change raised havoc with Palestinian terrorists this year.
Israel insisted on a premature switch from Daylight Savings Time to Standard Time to accommodate a week of pre-sunrise prayers. Palestinians refused to live on "Zionist Time." Two weeks of scheduling havoc ensued. Nobody knew the "correct" time.
At precisely 5:30pm on Sunday, two coordinated car bombs exploded in different cities, killing three terrorists who were transporting the bombs. It was initially believed that the devices had been detonated prematurely by klutzy amateurs. A closer look revealed the truth behind the explosions.
The bombs had been prepared in a Palestine-controlled area, and set to detonate on Daylight Saving Time. But the confused drivers had already switched to Standard Time. When they picked up the bombs, they neglected to ask whose watch was used to set the timing mechanism. As a result, the cars were still en-route when the explosives detonated, delivering the terrorists to their untimely demises. (Darwin Awards)
