Iran Training Thousands of Iraqi Militants: Iranian exile figure
Agence France Presse – Thousands of Iraqi Shiite militants are passing through terrorist training camps in Iran, a high-profile Iranian exile alleged Tuesday, accusing Tehran of seeking to destabilize its neighbor. Alireza Jafarzadeh, a former spokesman for the opposition National Council of Resistance of Iran, said Tehran was training fighters with light weapons, mortars and the roadside bombs used to such deadly effect against US troops.
“We’re not talking about some rag-tag elements and individuals who go out of their way and happen to provide weapons or assistance to a number of Shiite militia groups,” Jafarzadeh told reporters in New York.
“We are talking about systematic, well-organised, high-level training officially provided by the Iranian regime.”
