Report: Taliban gives US Tanks, Military Equipment to Iran

According to Iran International, a Persian television station headquartered in London and aimed at Iranian viewers, the Taliban was filmed this week moving captured US military vehicles on the Semnan-Garmsar road to neighboring Iran. Photos that have emerged on social media from Iran indicate that tanks and armored Humvees which belonged to the Afghan army were seen in Tehran and other parts of Iran.

If you want to start a war between two bitter rivals, heavily arming one side is a surefire way to do it. If Iran is actually receiving all of these weapons of war as reports indicate, will Israel attempt to blow up the transports en-route?

Besmallah Mohammadi, a former Afghan defense ministry official published one of the photos referring to Iran as a “bad neighbor” and saying Afghanistan misfortune will not last forever.

Iran had promised to resume fuel deliveries to Afghanistan last week, which the Taliban need to prevent a collapse in the economy. Tehran has adopted a friendly posture toward the Taliban, unlike past relations which were marked by tensions.

Iranian officials have not yet reacted to the news. However, if Iran has made a deal with the Taliban to receive some of the American military hardware given to the Afghan army or left behind, it would claim a big victory against the United States.

The reports received so far are brief and there is no information about the kind and quantity of hardware delivered to Iran.

As The Gateway Pundit reported earlier on Sunday — Joe Biden left 300 times more guns than those passed to the Mexican cartels in Obama’s Fast and Furious program.
A more complete list was created with public information and help from other intelligence sources.  The list does not include all the extra kinds of nonlethal equipment, everything from MRE’s, Medical Equipment, and even energy drinks.
The big story might be the pallets of cash the Taliban have been posting videos of pallets of weapons and stacks of $100 bills they have seized.

Earlier this week we posted a more complete list of US-supplied equipment abandoned to the Taliban by Joe Biden.

Thanks to Lance Migliaccio for the list.

One example is below:

If the Taliban has 208 military aircraft then according to the NationMaster list the Taliban now ranks #26 of all countries in the number of military aircraft.

One example is below:

It also appears the Taliban seized way more ScanEagle drones than the government is saying they did.   There is no accounting on the number of crashed units.

Direct Quote from Report
“This also raises concerns about how NAVAIR justified procuring 105 ScanEagle vehicles totaling over $32 million and spare parts totaling over $52 million, and future planned procurements.”
