The Islamic regime smuggles 22 tons of explosive to Afghanistan

Posted in Uncategorized by fartashphoto on October 7, 2010

Afghan police said Wednesday they had seized 22 tons of explosives stashed in boxes marked “food, toys and kitchenware” that were imported from neighboring Iran.

Police Chief Abdul Jabar Purdel said a suspect was detained after the devices were discovered in 337 boxes in a 40-foot shipping container moved from Iran into Afghanistan over a bridge connecting the two countries, CNN reported.

Nimruz province, in Afghanistan’s southwestern corner, borders Iran and Pakistan.

Iran has been attempting to smuggle shipments of weapons into Afghanistan as part of an increased effort to interfere with coalition operations, a senior U.S. Defense Department official said earlier this year.

Bombs made from old ammunitions and explosives are the main weapon used by the Taliban and other insurgents fighting against the Western-backed Afghan government and Western troops, and cause the bulk of military casualties.

While Tehran consistently denies supporting factions opposed to the Afghan government, U.S. and coalition troops have found evidence of Iranian weapons inside Afghanistan in seized caches or in the aftermath of attacks, CNN said.
