Iran pays to train Taliban: commanders

Insurgents trained to plan ambushes, lay IED bombs


 

Hundreds of insurgents have been trained in Iranian camps, the Sunday Times has learned. According to interviews with two Taliban commanders, Iranian officials paid them to attend three-month courses during the winter, where they learned to mount ambushes and use IED bombs to fight NATO troops. “The military is pressuring the Taliban in Pakistan. It is certainly harder to reach places that were once easy to get into. I think more of my fighters will travel to Iran for training this year,” said one commander. Western officials have confirmed the reports as credible.

Iran pays to train Taliban: commanders

  1. It's all so clear. Iran is responsible for all the car accidents within the USA. Iran is responsible for water running dry in the deserts of the world. Iran is responsible for H1N1. Iran is responsible for Tiger Woods philandering. And…Iran is SO, responsible for all the ills of the Israeli's from the shortage of land to steal to cluster bomb making.

    • Oh. You are a clever one, aren't you.
