"Iran's Quds Force provided training to Taliban in Afghanistan on small
unit tactics, small arms, explosives, and indirect fire weapons, such as
mortars, artillery, and rockets," the report said.
"Since at least 2006,
Iran has arranged arms shipments to select Taliban members, including small
arms and associated ammunition, rocket propelled grenades, mortar rounds,
107mm rockets, and plastic explosives. Iran has shipped a large number of
weapons to Kandahar, aiming to increase its influence in the country."
IRGC was also said to have played the leading role in training and
financing Iran's proxies. The report cited Hizbullah, Islamic Jihad and the
Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command.
"In 2010, Iran remained the principal supporter of groups implacably
opposed to the Middle East peace process," the report said.
"The Quds Force,
the external operations branch of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, is
the regime's primary mechanism for cultivating and supporting terrorists
abroad. Iran provided weapons, training, and funding to Hamas and other
Palestinian terrorist groups, including the Palestine Islamic Jihad
and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command. Iran
has provided hundreds of millions of dollars in support of Hizbullah in
Lebanon and has trained thousands of Hizbullah fighters at camps in Iran."
