US eyes Iranian arms in Iraq


SHAFAQNA – The United States is concerned about how heavy Iranian weaponry might be used inside Iraq, including as Iran-backed militia help the offensive to retake the Iraqi city of Tikrit from Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (Isis) militants, a US official said yesterday. Reuters has previously reported on the alleged presence of Iranian rockets inside Iraq. US officials declined to comment on specific Iranian weaponry after The New York Times reported it might include Fajr-5 artillery rockets and Fateh-110 missiles.
