Iran smuggled weapons within earthquake aid packages to target American troops
Using earthquake help meant for Syrians, Iran smuggled in weaponry to use against U.S. troops, according to a new leak, as reported by The Washington Post.
The Post has obtained a new document leak from the United States that appears to prove that Iran sent military equipment disguised as humanitarian supplies to Syria after the country was struck by an earthquake in February. Small guns, ammo, and drones were among the military supplies that had been secretly shipped, according to the leaked assessment.
The Quds Force is a unit of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, and the records state that they worked with local armed organizations in Iraq to organize the delivery.
According to the Post’s translation of the paper, the Quds Force officer ordered an Iraqi militia to “embed weapons within legitimate earthquake aid.” According to the records, “[the Popular Mobilization Committee] chief of staff” was engaged in the shipments, despite the fact that the umbrella group of militias has refuted the charges.
The results of the documents, according to a senior source in the office of Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani, are “fake.”
“In reality, the borders are wide open; in fact, we are still suffering from illegals sneaking through the Syrian border,” the source told The Post. “Which means if these documents are right, it’s possible any time. Why wait for an aid convoy as a justification?”
