Budget cuts woes for Hizbullah terror

Iran Said to Have Cut Hizbullah Aid by 40 Percent -Yaakov Katz

Iran has cut the annual funding it provides Hizbullah by over 40%, stirring an unprecedented crisis within the Lebanese Shi'ite organization, according to recent Israeli intelligence assessments.

Iran has in recent years provided Hizbullah with close to $1 billion in direct military aid, but due to international sanctions it has been forced to cut back on funding.

The cuts have stirred tension between Hizbullah and its Iranian patrons.
