Pro-Syrian Group Claims Iran Created Hurricane Sandy

Group says hurricane-turned-superstorm was not Mother Nature's work but rather the product of 'secret Iranian technology'

Who knew Iran had such advanced technology?

Weather experts worldwide agree that it was an unusual set of weather conditions that made Hurricane Sandy turn into a devastating superstorm, but according to a pro-Syrian government group Mother Nature had little to do with it.

The "News Network of the Syrian Armed Forces" claimed in a statement posted on its Facebook page that "secret Iranian technology" was behind the storm.

Sandy hit the East Coast with full force on Monday night, killing dozens in New York, New Jersey and other states in its path, leaving millions of Americans sans power or utilities and wreacking havoc estimated at nearly $30 billion. Prior to hitting the US, Sandy killed 69 people in the Caribbean.

"Sources confirmed to us that Hurricane Sandy that is slamming the US was set off by highly advanced technologies developed by the heroic Iranian regime that supports the resistance, with coordination of our resistive Syrian regime," the group's post read, according to a CNN report.

The post went on to say that the storm's battering force was "punishment for whoever dares to attack Syria's (Bashar) Assad and threaten peace and stability."

Iran has repeatedly voiced its support of the Assad regime, supplying it with arms and funds despite the brutal bloodshed that has been ripping the country apart since the uprising against Assad began in March 2011.

While many of the social network's users mocked the post, supporters of the regime "liked" it by the hundreds.

"Why are you surprised by such a heroic act that our special forces carried out with the help of the Iranian experts?," one wrote. "Yes this is the great work of the brave lions of Syria in retaliation to the evil conspiracy against our great nation. We will have our victory even if it will take some time," the report said.

Some comments suggested that Iran "manufacture hurricane Israel."
