Iran supplying Taliban with EFPs

Telegraph:

Iran is supplying the Taliban in Afghanistan with the same bomb-making equipment it provides to insurgents in Iraq, according to British military intelligence officers.

US Army General Dan McNeill, the commander of Nato forces in Afghanistan, said that the discovery of more than 50 roadside bombs and timers in lorries crossing the border from Iran last month proves that Iran's Quds Revolutionary Guards are actively supporting the Taliban.

...

British special forces, believed to be from the Special Boat Service, played a prominent role in tracking and intercepting two lorries that crossed from Iran into Afghanistan's Farah Province on Sept 5.

"I cannot see how it is possible for at least the Iranian military, probably the Quds force, to not have known of this convoy," said Gen McNeill.

He claimed the vehicles contained materials to make explosively formed penetrators (EFPs), a type of roadside bomb. Britain and America have accused Iran of supplying such bombs to Iraqi insurgents.

...

Iran continues it war against the US and NATO. It is a 28 year effort so far and will continue as long is the current regime is in power or until its ability to make war is destroyed.

They are getting pretty bold by bringing in the weapons on semi trailers which are the US equivalent of "lorries." The US is building an airfield near the area where the crossing was made that is intended to be the home of a new Afghan air force.
