Over the years, the West has frequently made claims that Iran provides assistance and weaponry to terrorists. Now, The Jerusalem Post is reporting that a new U.N. report corroborates these charges:
Iran has been caught red-handed in 10 different attempts in recent years to transfer weaponry to terrorists throughout the Middle East, including a recent case, in April, when a shipment of advanced missiles was caught en-route to Taliban forces in Afghanistan, according to a United Nations report obtained Thursday by The Jerusalem Post.
The report was submitted three weeks ago to the Security Council by a UN group of experts that monitors compliance with UN sanctions imposed on Iran. The report was leaked to the Internet and obtained by a number of leading Israeli defense analysts.
According to the Post, the report also discusses regular exchanges of sensitive ballistic missile technology and information between North Korea and Iran. While sanctions appear to be having an impact on Iran, the Middle Eastern country is circumventing these barriers and is still able to fund its nuclear and ballistic programs.
Despite warnings, Iran remains defiant, claiming that their programs are for peaceful purposes. But, with new data showing that Iran has been assisting terrorists, the international community isn't likely to buy into this rationale. Watch below for more:
