Caspian Air crash caused by explosives shipment to Hezbullah

Ten days ago, a Caspian Air TU 154 went down shortly after takeoff from Tehran killing all 188 people on board. On Saturday, the Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera reported that the plane went down because it was carrying explosives that were destined for Hezbullah in Lebanon.
The report quoted Middle East sources who said the plane, which took off from Tehran and was headed for Armenia, was carrying in its luggage compartment several metal cases with two kilograms of explosives and detonators destined for the Lebanese terrorist group. The shipment was meant to have continued by land from Armenia to Turkey, then to Syria, and finally to Lebanon.

Only 16 minutes after takeoff, the pilot of the Tupolev jet reported an emergency. Shortly afterwards, the plane crashed near the city of Qazvin. Eyewitnesses reported hearing explosions in the plane before it crashed into the ground.

The Italian paper also said that a member of the elite Iranian Revolutionary Guards was on board the plane to monitor the delivery of the goods to Hizbullah and that Iranian security forces arrived at the plane crash site. Iranian authorities have said that they recovered the plane’s three black boxes but have not yet offered an explanation for the fatal crash.
What kind of morons pack explosives in the cargo hold of a civilian airliner that they are not trying to blow up?

What this may show - believe it or not - is that Iran can no longer ship arms to Hezbullah via Syria. If so, that's good news. If it's because Syria won't let them anymore (as opposed to Israel monitoring border crossings between Lebanon and Syria, making it impossible to ship arms through Syria) that would be even better news.
